“Nothing of him that doth fade / but doth suffer a sea-change / Into something rich and strange.”
—Percy Shelley, The Tempest
Sea change, rich and strange. Swim in strange waters. Armed with beauty and circus, wage war on the monotony of life.
Designate time for what matters, and be a connoisseur of the free use of time. Live without dead time and without hindrance. Delight in life; give pleasure.
Choose again; begin again. Move and the way will open. Find your own happiness and paths to adventure. Follow the accident; fear the set plan.
Decide your own life. Don’t let another person run or rule you. Don’t run or rule others. Don’t go through life wanting to be liked.
How alive are you willing to be? What is the price of life? You must make your own determination and enforce it.
Hard times and oppression develop psychic muscles. Safety leads to stagnation.
Enlightenment consists in correctly grasping our essential needs. Wisdom values puzzles over facts. Avoid learning too many lessons. Pick up the battle and make it a better world, just where you are.
