I’m noticing that as I travel more and more in awareness and in a paradoxical state of knowing through not knowing, that the propensity to categorize people, or anything really, has strongly diminished. And occasionally, is virtually non-existent. What’s left to be seen is rather magical and sublime…beautiful, yet curiously chaotic in an exciting way…Without the veil of classification or designation, what’s left?…..Life, creation, all that is….and the coolest thing?…I’m part of it all.

Not that I want to be a god or a hero. Just to change into a tree, grow for ages, not hurt anyone.

A philosopher is a lover of wisdom, not of knowledge, which for all its great uses ultimately suffers from the crippling effect of ephemerality. All knowledge is transient, linked to the world around it and subject to change as the world changes, whereas wisdom, true wisdom is eternal, immutable.
