Be suspicious of what you want.
If you are lugging a heavy bag,
do not fail to look inside it
to see whether what is inside is bitter or sweet.
If it is really worth bringing along, bring it;
otherwise, empty your sack
and redeem yourself from fruitless effort.
Only put into your sack
that which is worth bringing.
We are like the spider. We weave our life and then move along in it. We are like the dreamer who dreams and then lives in the dream. This is true for the entire universe.
We are one, after all, you and I.
Together we suffer, together exist,
and forever will recreate each other.
—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
