“To the Kabbalist, the whole universe is a network of meaningful connections. The seemingly coincidental is as full of meaning as anything else. To begin thinking like a Kabbalist, you must regard everything as being just as important as everything else. All that seems ‘accidental,’ ‘meaningless,’ ‘chaotic,’ ‘weird,’ ‘nonsensical,’ et cetera is as significant as what seems lawful, orderly, and comprehensible.”
Those who are in earnest do not die, those who are thoughtless are as if dead already.
No one saves us but ourselves,
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path
Buddhas merely teach the way.
By ourselves is evil done,
By ourselves we pain endure,
By ourselves we cease from wrong,
By ourselves become we pure.
