It’s becoming ironically clearer and clearer to me that feeling confused is a very natural human state, one that we shouldn’t fight against, but completely embrace. Clarity within chaos? Ah beautiful paradoxes.

“Don’t be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen.” ~ George Saunder

Journals out, writing fiercely: the antidote to chasing the shapes of unclear ideas within this head of mine. The creative process gone a little mad. “You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Found Wisdom

THE stack these days. In no particular order. Book and journals, journals and books. Day 84 – 365 Project.

Finding inspiration in the words that I’ve gathered around me.

“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering its a feather bed.” ~ Terence McKenna

“Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.” ~ C. JoyBell C.
