“Art is not a pleasure, a solace, or an amusement; art is a great matter. Art is an organ of human life, transmitting mans reasonable perception into feeling.”

Happy birthday David Crosby!  This song rocks in a most serious way….Jerry Garcia on lead guitar.

The Life of Robin Williams.

There are some actors who give performances so powerful that they elevate mediocre movies to something great, and there are movies written so well that they leave the audience members leaving the theaters rethinking their lives. For Robin Williams it was often the case that these two coincided. I’d like to post this as a thank you to him for the inspiration these movies have given me. Rest in peace, Robin. 

That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

“I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.””

— Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

“Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, be fortified by it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”

—   Hermann Hesse (via occult101)

Most people live blissfully unaware of the fact that their most confident tacit assumptions would crumble if the question “why?” were asked, and repeated once or twice when reasons were given.

“Your mind is steeped in the habits of evaluation and acquisition, and will not admit that the incomparable and unobtainable are waiting timelessly within your own heart for recognition. All you have to do is to abandon all memories and expectations. Just keep yourself ready in utter nakedness and nothingness.”
—  Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
