MIND: Pathways

The best way to travel, after all, is to feel,
to feel everything in every way,
to feel everything excessively,
because all things are, in truth, excessive
and all reality is an excess,
a violence, an extraordinarily vivid hallucination.

// Fernando Pessoa

MIND: Demolish

There exists, for everyone,
a sentence – a series of words
that has the power to destroy you.
Another sentence exists, another series of words,
that could heal you.
If you’re lucky you will get the second,
but you can be certain of getting the first.

VALIS // Philip K. Dick

MIND: Complex

To love is to suffer.
To avoid suffering one must not love – But then one suffers from not loving.
Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer.
To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.

// Woody Allen
