day 117 ~ musings


"It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. 
Where you stumble, there lies your treasure."

"Life is without meaning. 
You bring the meaning to it. 
The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. 
Being alive is the meaning."

"Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths."

"One way or another, we all have to find what best fosters the flowering of our humanity in this contemporary life, and dedicate ourselves to that."

"Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging."

"The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure."


"I don't have to have faith, I have experience."

"The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are."

  1. the smaller images work quite nicely on their own too!!

  2. A vital energy permeates this post, and I love this new Misha creation. There are times when all the books and great words and pieces of music or visual art just fall flat, because something has interfered with the receptors, but an ongoing truth is that there are unimpeachable reasons for all of the beauty and beautiful works of our species. We need them. We need the constant reminders. We need to earn the awesome potential that is ours.

  3. Thanks, Zennic. I wanted to share the detail. Glad you enjoyed it. :)


    A vital energy permeates your comment. Thank you for taking the time so thoughtfully, Rick.

    Mr. Campbell resonates and radiates, which is why I used a few quotes here that have already been used elsewhere in this blog. I wouldn't be surprised if that first one shows up yet again on some future post. Truth: it bears repeating.

    Happy Monday, my friend <3
