One cannot plan a journey of discovery,
just as one cannot plan a sculpture.

Sculptures, paintings, dance, music and other arts come from a process of creativity,
each step revealing its own self, ready for the discovery of what the next step will become.

It is the same with the discovery of the self,
each new step of awakening revealing the start of the next.

If you are working to a pre-determined plan, you are unlikely to discover anything of worth.

Open your mind, let go of plans, and choose distant goals instead,
for they provide direction, but do so with the anticipation of an unplanned journey.

Life is a journey, not a destination.
