Amazing how little I know
Amazing how much time and energy I spend defining and defending my self, when I know so little about it.
So much illusion and fear and false hope and emotion I carry! How things are not what they appear to be... How my illusions prevent even personal happiness...

Compensating for illusion
"The danger of [an illusion], because there's nothing there, is to overreact -- to that which isn't there. You're compensating for its absence."

Kindness and sorrow
Before you know kindness as the deepest thing inside,
you must know sorrow as the other deepest thing.
