The roots of plants are in the earth; the roots of the human body are in the soul.
"Drop waiting, start being. Waiting is a thought process, being is existential. Live, live as much as you can, as intensely as you can, as passionately as you can. And through that passionate love for life, through that flame of passion of authentic living something burns down in you - the ego. And when the ego is burnt down, something happens. That happening has nothing to do with your effort. It comes. It is a happening."
