“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” —Rumi

The air I breath, the water I drink and the molecular accumulations that I narrowly self-identified as my body could all have once been some part of some prehistoric T-Rex. In a way the dinosaurs has become me. As cell death is part of a my physiology; species extinction is evolution. As the T-Rex couldn’t have fathomed of becoming part of me; no more can I possibly be sure of or even imagine the essence of “my” future existence – possibly, as part of some collective consciousness (or unconsciousness).
“If it be true that there can be no metaphysics transcending human reason, it is no less true that there can be no empirical knowledge that is not already caught and limited by the a priori structure of cognition.”
— C.G. Jung, The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
“You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?”
— Rumi
