Learning to Forgive the Self

Perfection is just one of the multitudes of states that are possible. But it is the most stunning of them all.

I like getting stunned by perfection.

Stunning others is pointless. I do not mind if I do not stun myself.

Freezing v/s Diffusion

To love others and to want them to love back - are both signs of insufficiency of the self.

Beyond a point, self-sufficiency is boring, monotonous, and offers no incentive to continue to live for the next moment.

Both self-sufficiency and dependence lie on the opposite ends of the same scale.

Life is best enjoyed by allowing the self to be liberated of stipulations and proscriptions - allowing the self to slide either ways along the scale, pushed by nothing, but the momentum of impulses.

There are no 'points of no return' on either sides. Whatever such points we perceive are merely our own self-impositions.

Courage, Cowardice and a Choice

To live requires the courage to live one more moment, one more day. To die requires the courage to stop living forever, provided a choice is offered.

As far as the fate of the Universe is concerned, both courage and cowardice are overrated.

Partly inspired by ideas put forth by Sigmund Freud - eros and thanatos

Ideological Vanity

An ideal that does not serve another higher purpose is a cosmetic moral accessory. Its donning reeks of vanity and speaks of a paucity of purpose.

The highest possible tangible purpose is human happiness - an end in itself.
