Now Reading: Solipsist

by Henry Rollins. Now this is a true hardcore Zen / Tao / Dharma whatever book. I recommend every seeker on the path to get this book and read it ! Then do a re interpretation of your boring fucked up life and get on clear terms with yourself and stop acting yourself but become you. Every single Paragraf is a kick in the guts, a smack on the face and a spiritual vision.
It is sit down , shut up and read time !

People spend to much time trying to make themselves happy. They never know what its like to feel the sheer, silent weight of existence. They’re too busy running from something that they havent even dealt with. How can they be the master of their own lives without this knowledge
(page 29)

Some info on the side:
Solipsism is first recorded with the Greek presocratic sophist Gorgias (c. 483–375 BC) who is quoted by the Roman sceptic Sextus Empiricus as having stated:

Nothing exists
Even if something exists, nothing can be known about it, and
Even if something could be known about it, knowledge about it can’t be communicated to others
