Learning is finding out what you already know.
Doing is demonstrating that you know it.
Teaching is reminding others that they know
just as well as you.

You are all learners, doers, teachers.

Your only obligation in any lifetime is
to be true to yourself.

Being true to anyone else or anything else
is not only impossible, but the mark of a
false messiah.

The simplest questions are the most profound....

Where were you born?
Where is your home?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?

Think about these once in awhile,
and watch your answers change.


Your friends will know you better in
the first minute you meet
than your acquaintances will know you
in a thousand years.

There is no such thing as a problem
without a gift for you in its hands.

You seek problems because you need
their gifts.

You are led through your lifetime by
the inner learning creature, the playful
spiritual being that is your real self.

Don't turn away from possible futures
before you're certain you don't have
anything to learn from them.

You're always free to change your mind
and choose a different future,
or a different past.

Imagine the universe beautiful and just
and perfect.

Then be sure of one thing:

The Is has imagined it quite a bit better
than you have.

A cloud does not know why it moves in just
such a direction and at such a speed,
it feels an impulsion....this is the place
to go now.

But the sky knows the reason and the patterns
behind all clouds, and you will know, too,
when you lift yourself high enough to see
beyond horizons.

You are never given a wish without being given
the power to make it true.

You may have to work for it, however.

The world is your exercise-book, the pages
on which you do your sums.

It is not reality, although you can express
reality there if you wish.

You are also free to write nonsense, or lies,
or to tear the pages.

Every person, all the events of your life,
are there because you have drawn them there.

What you choose to do with them is up to you.

The truth you speak has no past and no future.

It is, and that's all it needs to be.

Here is a test to find whether your mission
on earth is finished:

If you're alive, it isn't.

Don't be dismayed at good-byes.
A farewell is necessary before you
can meet again.

And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes,
is certain for those who are friends.

The mark of your ignorance is the depth
of your belief in injustice and tragedy.

What the catepillar calls the end of the world,
the master calls a butterfly.

Nice post Adamist. Very Radiohead-ish :smile:

A man named Richard Bach wrote that... Some of it connected with me so I thought I'd pass it along. :smile:

I have never seen such an ego drenched piece of trash.  Seriously.

Richard Bach is whacked.

His soulmate is his inner hand. :smirk:
