A WRITER'S NOTEBOOK - WISDOM SAYINGS



               

                WHAT YOU DENY IN YOURSELF

YOU PROJECT ONTO OTHERS.



That's a head-scratcher, all right.


"Who said that?"

                                "That's what I said."


   
                                *



STOP TALKING AND THINKING

             AND THERE IS NOTHING

YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO KNOW *



                                *


THE GREAT WAY IS EASY FOR HE WHO HAS NO PREFERENCES. *



                                 *


THE WAY IS PERFECT LIKE

               VAST SPACE


                                *

No, he was not in Jamaica

No, he was sitting here
            

           in the midst

Of a tropical paradise

           of snow.


                           *
        

They are unmolested by any attempts
                 at disaster.

                           
                            *


As soon as you think you're wise, you're
in big big trouble. It means the Universe is about to kick you in the ass.

The gods have always hated hubris.

                            *

Do not deny the existence of any gods
or entities. No matter how outrageous
some assertions may be, it's always best
to say, "Maybe."  Maybe so.

I choose to live in a mysterious Universe,
and I've rarely been disappointed
in reality.

                             *

In fact, the Universe is not just stranger than we imagine... 

it is stranger than we can imagine.


                                    *

I find this encouraging because what we build we tend to screw up. We have not incorporated
the principle of fluidity or the circle sufficiently into our architecture - let alone the Japanese principle of asymmetry.

                                     *

All is One but two are walking down the road.


                                       *

THE ONLY SIN IS SELF-DOUBT

                   
                                                           Father Belyea
