“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.

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.

“Ask not to be forgiven, for this has already been accomplished. Ask, rather, to learn how to forgive, and to restore what always was to your unforgiving mind,” A Course in Miracles (p. 279).

and everything else follows,” Osho.
