Wondering Evermore

out the door
with the
backpack
containing
only with
the basics
of necessities
in order to
find
seek/
search/
and/or locate
the meaning
of truth
that is
does it
truly exist
or is it
a figment
of our
collective
imagination
if so
then can
we say
that the
human race
is living
in a world
of fantasy
will i/we/us
ever figure
it out

Know Thyself

“The aim of human life is to know thyself. Think for yourself. Question authority. Think with your friends. Create, create new realities. Philosophy is a team sport. Philosophy is the ultimate, the ultimate aphrodisiac pleasure. Learning how to operate your brain, learning how to operate your mind, learning how to redesign chaos” – Timothy Leary

I Live

I live for today.

Tomorrow I will, that is if it comes, as we never know what will happen.

Yesterday, why dwell on it. It’s done. It’s history. What ever happened, happened. So why worry about it. Move on.

That’s my philosophy.

Observation

The Indian philosopher J. Krishnamurti once remarked that
observing without evaluating is the highest form of human
intelligence. When I first read this statement, the thought,
‘What nonsense!’ shot through my mind before I realized that
I had just made an evaluation.

— Marshall Rosenberg

Advice

Look, I really don’t want to wax philosophical, but I will say that
if you’re alive, you got to flap your arms and legs, you got to
jump around a lot, you got to make a lot of noise, because life
is the very opposite of death. And therefore, as I see it, if
you’re quiet, you’re not living. You’ve got to be noisy, or at
least your thoughts should be noisy and colorful and lively.
