Religion is lived by people who are afraid of hell. Spirituality is lived by people who have been through hell and come out enlightened.

I guess I’m phlegmatic.

"Your temperament is phlegmatic. The phlegmatic temperament is fundamentally relaxed and quiet, ranging from warmly attentive to lazily sluggish. Phlegmatics tend to be content with themselves and are kind. They are accepting and affectionate. They may be receptive and shy and often prefer stability to uncertainty and change. They are consistent, relaxed, calm, rational, curious, and observant, qualities that make them good administrators. They can also be passive-aggressive."

The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out Who You Are, but seek to determine Who You Want to Be.

I came across this painting by Marc Chagall this morning and it was love at first sight. His use of color gets me every time.

Water Clouds found outside the solar system for the first time W0855—a Jupiter-sized brown dwarf, only 7.3 light years from Earth. If the scientists who just published a new paper on its composition are right, it’s the first object outside the solar system in which we have observed water clouds—an amazing discovery. Keep in mind that we have only detected water clouds on Earth and Mars.  Read it all here: http://arxiv.org/abs/1408.467
