merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.

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

the dust that you have collected in the past,
the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young.
Your whole life becomes a flame,
and a flame without any smoke.
That is what awareness is.
- Osho
