He said, “Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”
So, I stumbled onto this great quote yesterday, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. It’s something I used to know, but had forgotten, and remembering it.. well… it just feels right. Here it is:
In as much as God already IS and is closer than breathing, you cannot really achieve God: you can only achieve the realization of God’s presence, which is already always with you. When you stop trying to get health and understand that there is but one thing to get and that is a realization of God, you become quiet… Something marvelous happens inwardly and outwardly when you stop desiring something external to yourself.
There are moments, dark moments, moments of pain and hurt and aches and bruises. There are dark nights but they are part of the whole game. Without the dark night you cannot have a bright morning, and without the hurt, without the pain, you cannot enjoy either. They go together. Only dead people go beyond pain and then they go beyond pleasure too.
