How Deep are Your Claw Marks?


How deep are your claw marks?

The only advice I can give is to dig in your claws as little as possible. Because you’re going to be dragged into the truth; the only question is how deep are the claw marks you leave in the ground as you get dragged :) And you will leave some claw marks because everybody leaves some claw marks; everybody holds on. Everybody holds on but the less you hold on, the easier and quicker it goes.

The Rhythm of Love

Ji, why was I unhappy all my life?

Because you did not go down to the very roots of your being. It is your complete ignorance of yourself, that covered up your love and happiness and made you seek for what you have never lost. Love is will, the will tos hare your happiness with all. Being happy — making mappy — this is the rhythm of love.

Stillness is Not Inactive

Photo by Jon

Stillness and silence are not inactive. The flower fills the space with perfume, the candle with light. They do nothing yet they change everything by their mere presence. You can photograph the candle, but not its light. You can know the man, his name and appearance, but not his influence. His very presence is action.
