you remembered something here

I opposed subjective to objective, imagination to realism. I thought that having gone so deeply into my own feelings and dramas I could never again reach objectivity and knowledge of others.

But now I know that any experience carried out deeply to its ultimate leads you beyond yourself into a larger relation to the experience of others. If you intensify and complete your subjective emotions, visions, you see their relation to others’ emotions.

It is not a question of choosing between them, one at the cost of another, but a matter of completion, of inclusion, an encompassing, unifying, and integrating which makes maturity.

~Anais Nin

nothing quite like a tiny aha moment, alone, rendering the day helpless….

inquiry for today~ when you know what you know……

how we touch upon each other

What could be more stupid than to tighten up our muscles and set our jaws about virtue, or poetry, or the solution of a problem. Attention is something quite different.

Attention, taken to its highest degree, is the same thing as prayer. It presupposes faith and love.

~Simone Weil
