It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.

Seneca


Our physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense.

"Only the fool hopes to repeat an experience ~ the wise man knows that every experience is to be viewed as a blessing. Whatever we try to deny or reject is precisely what we have need of ~ it is our very need which often paralyzes us, prevents us from welcoming a (good or bad) experience."
-Henry Miller
