Gladiator of joy

I want you to know, My Dear, that you need not feel so vulnerable.

You’re an ancient gladiator of joy who chose the jungles of time and space with your superhero friends to experiment with shape shifting, mind bending, and planetary transformations. Any twinges of self-doubt are just to keep you grounded enough to refrain from laughing at the things your protégés might find terrifying.

You need not feel so vulnerable,
The Universe

Once you realize

Once you realize that the road is the goal and that you are always on the road, not to reach a goal, but to enjoy its beauty and its wisdom, life ceases to be a task and becomes natural and simple, in itself an ecstasy.

 

~Nisargadatta Maharaj

Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.

 

~Jack Kerouac

Be kind

Be kind to yourself as you proceed along this journey. This kindness, in itself, is a means of awakening the spark of love within you and helping others to discover that spark within themselves.

 

~Tsoknyi Rinpoche
