The essence of life- The essence: free movement of spirit. Original Essence.

The principle of life- Life is never stagnation. It is a constant movement, unrhythmic movement, as well as constant change. Things live by moving and gain strength as they go.

The pendulum of life must have balance- Only sober moderation lasts, and that persists through all time. Only the mid part of anything is preserved because the pendulum of life must have balance, and the mid part is the balance.

Pliability is life- Be pliable. When a man is living, he is soft and pliable; when he is dead, he becomes rigid. Pliability is life; rigidity is death, whether one speaks of man’s mind, his body, or his spirit.

Life as an educator- Life itself is your teacher, and you are in a constant state of learning.


Knowledge, knowing and time- Knowledge, surely, is always of time, whereas knowing is not of time. Knowledge is from a source, from an accumulation, from a conclusion, while knowing is a movement.

To be free of the bonds of time- To realize freedom the mind has to learn to look at life, which is vast movement, without the bondage of time, for freedom lies beyond the field of consciousness-care for watching but don’t stop and interpret “I am free,” then you’re living in a memory of something that has gone.

The Now

The moment is freedom- I couldn’t live by a rigid schedule. I try to live freely from moment to moment, letting things happen and adjusting to them.


There is no method to reality- Do not reduce reality to a static thing and then invent methods by which to reach it.

Reality and perception- There is a difference:

-The world

-Our reaction to it

The formal reality of a thing- Whatever exists has certain reality. Nonrepresentation of an object is not a formal reality.
