Saddhasura's Final Push will remind you that you are not a human being on a spiritual journey, you’re a spiritual being on a human journey.
“The things I’ve missed out on are the things I haven’t kept my eye on.”
“The human being is inconsistent by its very nature. Everything about us is constantly changing.”
“I’ve got a choice. I can either crumble and let this all really get the better of me or I can just see it as a really great opportunity.”
“Here and now is not bad. The past is just a string of proteins that are lined up in my brain. The future is a possibility based in fantasy and projection. Neither one of those alternatives are a useful place to plan anything.”
“In the manure of this experience, a rose can grow.”
