Journal Entry October 18th, 1839 ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The constant flow of life again and again demands fresh adaptation :: Adaptation is never achieved once and for all. ~ Carl Gustav Jung

I am to invite men drenched in Time to recover themselves and come out
of time, and taste their native immortal air.

I am to fire with what skill I can the artillery of sympathy and emotion.

I am to indicate constantly, though all unworthy, the Ideal and Holy Life,
the life within life, the Forgotten Good, the Unknown Cause in which we
sprawl and sin.

I am to try the magic of sincerity, that luxury permitted only to kings and
poets.

I am to celebrate the spiritual powers in their infinite contrast to the
mechanical powers and the mechanical philosophy of this time.

I am to console the brave sufferers under evils whose end they cannot
see, by appeals to the great optimism, self-affirmed in all bosoms.

Generally just Being. Nothing in particular, no claims to fame. I like gardening and the sea, nature, art in all forms from poetry to films and everything in between, and being in the company of my family.

''I am all pervasive. I am without any attributes, and without any form. I have neither attachment to the world, nor to liberation. I have no wishes for anything because I am everything, everywhere, every time, always in equilibrium. I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.''
