‘Freedom is an Adventure Without End’ – Don Juan

‘Forget the self and you will fear nothing.’

‘Freedom cannot be measured, freedom is an adventure without end, in which we risk our lives and much more for a few moments of something beyond words, beyond thoughts or feelings.  To seek freedom is the only driving force I know, freedom to fly off into infinity, freedom to dissolve, to lift off; to be like the flame of a candle, which is spite of being up against the light of a billion stars, remains intact, because it never pretended to be more than it is: a mere candle.’

‘Self importance is the nemesis of mankind.’

Don Juan (from Carlos Castaneda – The Art of Dreaming)
