“THE GREATEST OF ALL THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF 20TH-CENTURY SCIENCE has been the discovery of human ignorance.” Lewis Thomas, Lives of a Cell. “OUR IGNORANCE, OF COURSE, HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH US, AND ALWAYS WILL BE. What is new is our awareness of it, our awakening to its fathomless dimensions, and it is this, more than anything else, that marks the coming of age of our species.” Timothy Ferris, Coming of Age in the Milky Way.

Lust for Life

The Buddha's Second Noble Truth is that desire is the root of suffering; the Third Noble Truth is that the cessation of desire is the end of suffering. (No passion = No anguish)

Sounds legit. But is this how you wish to live? Are you willing to sacrifice your passion in order to eliminate your pain?
