MeditationMoment23: play

“The notion of creative play will be accorded a major part in the life philosophy of the future. If mankind is to go on existing and progressing by way of playful activities, they will have to be creative; the necessary muse somehow be brought forth by means of them. And this is possible, since play is not a form of doing nothing. The more activities, indeed, become play in the philosophical sense, the more work would be accomplished in the economic sense, and the more values would be created in human society,” Moritz Schlick.

MeditationMoment22: forever

“And now as long as space endures,
As long as there are beings to be found,
May I continue likewise to remain
To drive away the sorrows of the world.”

– Shantideva’s The way of the Bodhisattva, v. 10.55 (Trans. Pema Chodron).

MeditationMoment18: courage

“You cannot be truthful if you are not courageous
You cannot be loving if you are not courageous 
You cannot be trusting if you are not courageous
You cannot inquire into reality if you are not courageous 
Hence courage comes first
           and everything else follows,” Osho.
