“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.”

What is sentience? If you were to zoom in on a single cell in the human body, would you call the cell sentient? Probably not. The same could be said of a single tree. Yet the mycorrhizal network shows a complex system whereby trees and plants exchange nutrients and information, using the roots and fungi, in what has been termed the Wood Wide Web.

“Knowledge of man is the beginning of wholeness, but knowledge of God is perfect wholeness. Therefore, as it seems, it is the greatest of all disciplines to know oneself; for a man knows himself, he knows God.” 

Clement of Alexandria

Should you kill the ego? Destroy it? Annihilate it? The truth is, the ego is not the enemy, but can become an important ally in your journey of spiritual growth.

Having chosen death over exile, Socrates’ last words were: “the unexamined life is not worth living.” I don’t fully agree. Socrates’ words are saturated with truth but they’re harsh.
