If you want to change the world, have a child. Love someone. Be in a happy marriage.

If you want to change the world, change yourself. Be an example.

To heal the world, heal yourself.

To heal yourself, help someone else.

To know yourself, know what you are not.

You must die, change, transform from what you were, in order to bring yourself fully into the world. Time and time again. Every day, a new soul rises from your bed.

The things I am talking about are simple, and simple people understand.

We seek far and wide, and study many books, because we are ignorant of the simple.

And the true voyage is to look upon one’s homeland and see it with foreign eyes, the longest journey.

And to know you are neither foreign nor native, citizen nor stranger, but just an individual, and a human.
