Sit quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.
Read. It makes you more intelligent. It’s that simple. We all see the universe through the tiny keyhole of our own eyes, and every book is another keyhole from which you can gaze.
You have both war and poetry in your mind.
Discovering the confusion is the most important thing of all. It is facing reality and getting beyond the many kinds of self-deception.
Thank you for your advice
When you perceive nature only through the mind, through thinking, you cannot sense its aliveness, it’s beingness. You see the form only and are unaware of the life without the form - the sacred mystery.
Took a drive out to the Great Salt Lake today. It was so nice to sit on a flat rock at the water’s edge soaking in the sun, listening to the birds overhead and the soft lapping of the water at the rocky edge. I journaled and reveled in the opportunity to pause and just be.

I know this is going to be hard for dynamic and interesting extroverts to believe, but some people are happy being introverts. Shy people don’t stay in on a Friday night because they’re broken, they stay in because they get more enjoyment out of reading at home than they do out of going to a sweaty bar or crowded party or loud concert or violent, I don’t know, quinceanera. Quiet people avoid talking in large crowds not because they don’t know how to talk, but because they prefer listening. Shy and awkward people are not looking for you to save them because they don’t need to be saved. Why do we throw around the phrase “She really helped him break out of his shell” as if that’s a good thing? If a turtle breaks out of his shell, he will die.
