Life as it is lived suffices

"Life as it is lived suffices.
It is only when the disquieting intellect steps in and tries to murder it that we stop
to live and imagine ourselves to be short of or in something.
Let the intellect alone, it has its usefulness in its proper sphere,
but let it not interfere with the flowing of the life-stream.
If you are at all tempted to look into it, do so while letting it flow.
The fact of flowing must under no circumstances be arrested or meddled with…


The great fact of life itself … flows altogether outside of these vain exercises of the intellect or of the imagination.


No amount of wordy explanations will ever lead us into the nature of our own selves.
The more you explain, the further it runs away from you.
It is like trying to get hold of your own shadow."

D.T. Suzuki

  1. I agree with this save for imagination. Apart from that I have often experienced that contentment grows when we do not try to cast rocks into life's river - this may disturb the river's current for a moment but not its course.


Put all your soul into it, write the way you feel.
