A plastic brain shaped by the path

The external ruggedness poses a challenge that compels an individual to grow. 

We evolve because we must struggle. And it’s the endurance that makes the human. 

The only thing we really have any control over is our own experience.

Traleg Rinpoche

As we piece together the scraps of experience, we put the bones back in the goose and we discard the thoughts that don’t serve us. 

Like an umbrella, the brain protects us from inertia. It’s the giant sucking sound of mediocrity that we have to look out for.
