My beloved, this life is not a test, not a step on the way,
not a rehearsal, nor a prelude to paradise.
This life is the only thing here and now and it is all you need.
(Baruch de Spinoza)
The knowledge of the mind should be connected
with the knowledge of the heart.
Only then will it be wisdom.
"The hearts of babies,
which are held close to the heart
of their parents
beat in sync with the hearts of them."
(Terry Levy und Michael Orlans)
"Touch is the root.
And that is how we should deal with it."
