“Modern physics has shown that the rhythm of creation and destruction is not only manifest in the turn of the seasons and in the birth and death of all living creatures, but is also the very essence of inorganic matter… For the modern physicists, then, Shiva’s dance is the dance of subatomic matter.” -Fritjof Capra

“Wisdom tells me I am nothing.
Love tells me I am everything.
Between these two, my life flows.”

“Life can only be lived dangerously – there is no other way to live it. It is only through danger that life attains to maturity, growth. One needs to be an adventurer, always ready to risk the known for the unknown. And once one has tasted the joys of freedom and fearlessness one never repents because then one knows what it means to live at the optimum. Then one knows to burn life’s torch from both ends together. And even a single moment of that intensity is more gratifying than the whole eternity of mediocre living.” ~Osho
