Use the right tool

 

I really do go back and forth between addressing the world from the heart or through the body. The body is most reliable, but the heart is more fun.   But whichever, the thing that is most tragic is watching people trying to “figure it all out.”   You can’t.  Wrong tool for the job.  The best thing your head can do is drop you into an arena where it will turn off and let your physical experience or emotional connections rule.  The intellect is a paper cup, trying to convince you it can hold the ocean.

Everyone, in other words, is just smart enough to  trap themselves if they make the mistake of believing their maps, however complex, actually represent reality.Watching people run around and around in diminishing circles of solipsistic logic is like watching a snake devouring its own tail.
