We are the authors of our own destinies, the pioneers of our lives. And yet, our world is made of patterns. Eternal truths that appear and repeat, over and over, across the millennia. For it's only by standing on the shoulders of the past that we can truly gaze into the future. Wish you all a very happy and exclusive New Year.
Fear, base, raw, mortal fear, is the dividing line in our species. And no matter how hard we struggle to define it, it can't be quantified. But it's one of the only constant units of measure, one of the few things that makes us who we are. The only uniquely human force with enough power to overcome fear... is love.
Human beings are hard-wired to connect. We are drawn to one another by our own chemistry. We produce attachment hormones that create intimacy. We build neural bridges that bond us, brain to brain... heart to heart. Those bonds, once formed, are not meant to be broken.
Einstein believed in timelessness; he believed that all of time exists at once: past, present, future. Everyone we ever knew and everything we'll ever be, is with us in this moment. If this is true, then all moments are equally real and accessible to us. We just have to know how.
