Never be ashamed of what YOU must do in order to thrive. To take care of yourself so you can enjoy the life that’s been given to you.
But if a person has had the sense of the Call — the feeling that there’s an adventure for him — and if he doesn’t follow that, but remains in the society because it’s safe and secure, then life dries up. And then he comes to that condition in late middle age: he’s gotten to the top of the ladder, and found that it’s against the wrong wall.

“In school’s we’ve been taught that it is virtuous to think and a lot and have the right answer…you know what they do in Schools now? There’s no phys ed…you know what they are doing more of? Thinking and talking. We’ve been conditioned this way”
– Elliot Hulse
I study better when I engage my body every 5 minutes in some way…pushups, pullups, running in place, balancing, whatever engages your entire body. Promote balance in the self. If you exert the abstract within you, exert the physical within you. Than you’ll be exerting the “YOU”.
Questions cannot logically be stupid. Unless you believe they are somehow living entities that lack intelligence. Questions are questions. That’s all they are. So ask away unashamedly, and grow.
“The most important gift that you receive by taking action in the direction of your dream, is not attaining the dream. It’s you growing stronger and becoming a stronger version of yourself THROUGH the challenges, THROUGH the resistance, and BECAUSE it’s hard”
