I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.

who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Mind can never be intelligent - only no-mind is intelligent.
Only no-mind is original and radical.
Only no-mind is revolutionary - revolution in action.

burdened by the projections of the future,
you go on living - at the minimum.
You dont live at the maximum.
