Volontà



Compito della volontà

è correggere le imperfezioni

del caso

Meta

My favourite concept.
One of the few concepts that separate humans from non-humans.
The ability to think about self, even before self-"conscience".

Meta-thoughts. The ability to observe the endless stream of your own thoughts appear and float inside your mind, and to gently swipe them aside at will, before you are drawn in.
Why train yourself to stop thinking, when you can train yourself to sit on the edge of your mind and observe your thoughts go by.
The ability to remain safely outside of the stream, observing. It requires training, curiosity, and compassion.

Acknowledge your thoughts and, by so doing, learn who you are.
Occasionally throw a little pebble in, perturbate the flow.  See how you reacts.
With time, learn to make it better. Choose what the you outside likes to see and wants to keep.
Choose who you will be.

semplici verita'



Ognuno sta solo sul cuor della terra
trafitto da un raggio di sole:
ed è subito sera.
(Quasimodo, 1930)


Certe intuizioni si rivelano essere verita' assolute.

Stop


Ambitions cause unhappiness and grief.

Frustrated ambitions have a potential to kill.

Thoughts of life

Find the right people
Feel their vibes.

Life on another planet is not about amino acids.
Life is thoughts. Alien thoughts perhaps. 
As you approach from far away, there may be layers to go through. An atmosphere.
Then mass, land, liquid, gas.
The right chemistry.
But you won't have found life until you have found thoughts.

Thought of the day #32




La mente genera immagini per combattere la propria solitudine.

In equilibrio tra il conforto dei ricordi e la sorpresa dell'invenzione.
