1. CURIOSITY

I always loved to just the shape of Ireland actually on the map was very evocative to me it seemed almost like a person.

“That I was actually supposed to live in both and I suppose that’s the unspoken origin of what I call beautiful questions that we’re never going to get the entirely beautiful answer but we can always ask really beautiful questions. And always enlarge your horizon and your sense of things in your context and your understanding.”

2. SELF KNOWLEDGE

3. VULNERABILITY

You can be under the illusion that you’re safe but the sense of robust vulnerability gives you the possibility of real joy and privilege.

So you could say that childhood is the act of growing older and adulthood is the act of growing younger back into body back into our birthright visionary experience of the world. You know the child is fated to grow older into the world but as adults we have the possibility of growing younger.

4. COURAGE

Courage is a measure of our heartfelt participation with life with another with the community a work a future. To be courageous is not necessarily to go anywhere or to do anything except to make conscious those things we already feel deeply and then to live through the unending vulnerabilities of those consequences.

5. AMBITION

But they’ve got more of an ability to shape that general in conversation with others a man needs to step down into place of silence spaciousness yeah and unto another kind of ground in order to find that generosity inside himself.

Because the West has so much to offer and in our political systems at the moment especially with Donald Trump who’s their representation of everything that is wrong with a masculine psyche of an immature boy that has never grown fully into the world

We’re going sometimes we make ourselves ugly you know to get out of a relationship so the other person will go away and we need to get away from our old selves so we’re going through I think a period of moulting and uglification in order to be able to let it go and ask for something else.

An invitation to the other horizon when your eyes are tired the world is tired also when your vision is gone no part of the world can find you it’s time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognise its own.

There you can be sure you are not beyond love the dark will be your home tonight the night will give you a horizon further than you can see.

You must learn one thing must learn one thing the world was made to be free and give up all the other worlds except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness, to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive it’s too small for you.

Anything or anyone that does not bring your alive is too small for you.
