700 Kilometers of Lessons

May 19, 2005

Here is my not-really-top-ten list of lessons experienced during the 700 kilometers that Guri and I have walked to date:

  • We are not alive in the universe; the universe is alive in us.
  • Nature is our teacher.
  • It's pointless to endure pain. It is liberating to understand suffering.
  • Pilgrims don't walk on paths; they travel patterns of their own habits.
  • I am not my ego.
  • Those who have less, give more.
  • To greet another soul, you must first walk in through the door of goodness.
  • Human minds cannot grasp the destination of their journeys.
  • Winds of grace are always blowing. Just open your sails.
  • You won't solve all the problems of the world. But make sure you aren't a problem for the world to solve.
