end of the year muse iii

Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it. 

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.

Those who awaken never rest in one place.
Like swans, they rise and leave the lake.
On the air they rise and fly an invisible course.
Their food is knowledge.
They live on emptiness.
They have seen how to break free.
Who can follow them?

When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.
