Michell Halley – @michellhalley

Sueño: Una vez soñé que era hiperflexible, brincaba muy alto y hacía unos splits en el aire de O grados y parecían de 360, supongo que esa es la manifestación subconsciente con respecto al diálogo, ya que veo todo correlacionado… La apertura de escuchar y realmente estar dispuesto al intercambio. De crecer mi perspectiva con la tuya y viceversa.

Dream: One time I dreamed that I was hyperflexible, I was jumping really high and I doing splits in the air of 0 degrees that looked like 360, I assume that it was the manifestation of my subconscious mind related to the dialog, since I see everything correlated… The will of listening and be ready to the interchange of ideas. Of nurture my perspective with yours and viceversa.

Frase

It is difficult to find a single word that will adequately describe the ideal man of the free philosophers and the founders of religion. “Non-attached” is perhaps the best. The ideal man is the non-attached man. Non-attached to his bodily sensations and lusts. Non-attached to his craving for power and possessions. Non-attached to the objects of these various desires. Non-attached to his anger and hatred; non-attached to his exclusive loves. Non-attached to wealth, fame, social position. Non-attached even to science, art, speculation, philanthropy. Yes, non-attached even to these. For, like patriotism, in Nurse Cavell´s phrase, “these are not enough.” Non-attachment to self and to what are called “the things of this world” has always been associated in the teachings of the philosophers and the founders of religions with attachment to an ultimate reality greater and more significant than even the best things that this world has to offer. Of the nature of this ultimate reality I shall speak in other chapters. All that I need do in this place is to point out that the ethic of non-attachment has always been correlated with cosmologies that affirm the existence of a spiritual reality underlying the phenomenal world and imparting to it whatever value or significance it possesses.

Ends & Means, Aldous Huxley
