If to enjoy even an enjoyable present we must have the assurance of a happy future, we are “crying for the moon.” We have no such assurance. The best predictions are still matters of probability rather than certainty, and to the best of our knowledge every one of us is going to suffer and die. If, then, we cannot live happily without an assured future, we are certainly not adapted to living in a finite world where, despite the best plans, accidents will happen, and where death comes at the end.
Alan Watts, The Wisdom of Insecurity
Practice is just hearing, just seeing, just feeling. This is what Christians call the face of God: simply taking in this world as it manifests. We feel our body; we hear the cars and birds. That’s all there is.
Charlotte Joko Beck.
Live frugally on surprise.
If you resist what happens,
you are at the mercy of what happens,
and the world will determine your happiness and unhappiness

It seems that perfection is attained not when there is nothing more to add,
but when there is nothing more to remove.
(Il semble que la perfection soit atteinte non quand il n’y a plus rien à ajouter,
mais quand il n’y a plus rien à retrancher)
Antoine de Saint Exupéry, Terre des Hommes
Leap and the net will appear.
