It is a piece of art by David Bell, it is on the inside cover of the last Fear Before album. For whatever reason, I felt a connection to it.
1. Never obey anyone’s command unless it is coming from within you also.
2. There is no god other than Life Itself.
3. Truth is within you, do not search for it elsewhere.
4. Love is prayer.
5. To become a nothingness is the door to truth. Nothingness itself is the means, the goal and attainment.
6. Life is now and here.
7. Live wakefully.
8. Do not swim — Float.
9. Die each moment so that you can be new each moment.
10. Do not search. That which is, is. Stop and see.
Nothing beats a 13 mile bike trek through the city and wilderness to get the morning started.
