Days End

When a man no longer confuses himself with the definition of himself that others have given him, he is at once universal and unique. He is universal by virtue of inseparability of his organism from the cosmos. He is unique in that he is just this organism and not any stereotype of role, class, or identity assumed for the convenience of social communication.

~ Alan Watts

We can't push away the world. We have to enter into life fully in order to become free.
