Inner Travels are cheaper!
Some guys are astronauts, some other astronomers, right?
- The guy who silently watch stars in his telescope sighs : he dreams he had the nerve to go.
- When the rocket launches, the other guy swears he should have stayed on solid ground.
In French, for “on solid ground” we say “sur le plancher des vaches” : “On cows’ floor”.
One explores the world and is disturbed by events, insecurity, unknowns, surprises, propositions, and danger and fear – one wants to go home, dreams of silence.
One lives into a quiet clean living space and sighs – though telling they’re happy & shielded, one wants to hunt, know, meet and explore.
Let’s quote the always funny Schopenhauer :
What to do what to do?
Tango? Try one then another? Find a way to do both? Explore from your quiet place? An astronomer in a rocket? A quiet moving exploring solid shielded bubble?

The rain it raineth on the just
And also on the unjust fella;
But chiefly on the just, because
The unjust hath the just’s umbrella.
“This is how it should be done: lodge yourself on a stratum, experiment with the opportunities it offers, find an advantageous place on it, find potential movements of deterritorialization, possible lines of flight, experience them, produce flow conjunctions here and there, try out continuums of intensities segment by segment, have a small plot of new land at all times.”

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
“Bureaucracy is a construction designed to maximize the distance between a decision-maker and the risks of the decision”.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
We have art in order not to die from the truth.
“Do I speak at the right time or not? Do I speak facts or not? Do I speak gently or harshly? Do I speak profitable words or not? Do I speak with a kindly heart or with inward malice?”
…is it a more ancient way to ask :
“Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates:
At the first gate, ask yourself “Is is true?”At the second gate ask, “Is it necessary?”At the third gate ask, “Is it kind?”
