The fundamental achievement is being alive, and then realizing that you are.
How do you go forward when there are no roads? Chart your own. When they don’t exist yet they are for you to create.
What makes humans unique is the ability to think, organize, adopt and disseminate technology, cooperate and compete.
If you are self aware you realize that you are at the center of the universe that is your life and that you manifest yourself through living in the world. The realization of this necessary interdependence deepens your level of consciousness. Live with your eyes open.
Life is about understanding and redefining yourself and the world, again and again.
I’m a Taoist existentialist : you are condemned to live YOUR life, but it is life itself you must live. Your life is yours and isn't. Freedom to be you and freedom to not be you, combined as life. Both the actor/agent and the spectacle.
With social networks we gain the world but we lose ourselves.
One is happier searching or solving never ending mysteries, than when knowing or owning all.
You were born as yourself. You had to become for others. Now find yourself and be yourself again.
Life is about connecting - with others but most importantly with yourself.
Act for love, act for those you care for, act for beauty, act for yourself.
Learn to give with pleasure, learn to take with grace.
In the future, we will have to reinvent ourselves, including our jobs.
In life we each have our path - discover and make yours your own.
Humans are never content - we never accept our conditions, always striving for more.
Life is like a work of art. It has to be made, evolved creatively, mixing imagination and planning. It will be unique, and will seek to be meaningful and inspire. It is yours and will be shared with the world.
The life you have is yours and it’s the only one you will experience - equally it’s the only experience you will have. Therefore it is a Becoming for you to Realize.
It's hard to be original, especially an original thinker.
You are your actions.
You are liberated when you realize that the way is unknown. Equally, you are at peace if you believe you know the way.
Hell is other people said Satre. Really, hell is yourself, and so is heaven - you are all you have - you are your own angel or devil.
Own your past but the future is what you have to make.
Remember, if you are unhappy, it’s not the world that must change, but you.
Being in the present is giving that moment and that experience independence from your life with its accumulated memories and emotions - separating you from who you really are, freeing you from you.
