Quote of the day: ADVICE

May 19, 2013

ADVICE

My advice to you is as follows:

one, learn meditation practice;

two, empower yourself with your own emotions –

don’t be afraid of grief, or heartthrob;

three, be willing to expose yourself and be a fool,

to not be intimidated in the presence of presidents

and rock stars, but come on as a gentle, living,

flesh and blood human being.

Don’t treat people as icons.

If what you’re doing is considered by all your friends

as too far out, think thrice –

so you don’t go outside the bounds of sanity –

check it out.

Get a good education in reading the Eastern and Western classics. Avoid animal fat.

Be a slave to love.

Wear your heart on your sleeve.

Twenty rejections in a row are wiped out by one acceptance.

— Allen Ginsberg
