"Nobody can build the bridge for you to walk across the river of life, no one but you yourself alone. There are, to be sure, countless paths and bridges and demi-gods which would carry you across this river; but only at the cost of yourself; you would pawn yourself and lose. There is in the world only one way, on which nobody can go, except you: where does it lead? Do not ask, go along with it."

- Friedrich Nietzsche
Untimely Meditations

"I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and I still am, but I no longer seek in the stars or in the books; I’m beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn’t pleasant. It’s not sweet and harmonious like invented stories. It tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves."

- Hermann Hesse

DEATH POEM

This human body truly is the entire cosmos

Each breath of mine, is equally one of yours, my darling

This tender abiding in “my” life

Is the fierce glowing fire of inner earth

Linking with all pre-phenomena

Flashing to the distant horizon

From “right here now” to “just this”

Now the horizon itself

Drops away—

Bodhi!

Svaha.
