Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
In the morning, look out and let the landscape take up full residence in your heart before all is intervened by the sound of human voices.
Human consciousness does not emerge at any depth except through struggling with our shadow.
