Gaze into the fire, into the clouds, and as soon as the inner voices begin to speak..surrender to them. Don’t ask first whether it’s permitted, or would please your teachers or father or some god. You will ruin yourself if you do that.
― Hermann Hesse

Reminds me of Haruki Murakami passage in ‘after the quake’ about stoking bonfires. It really is beautiful… “When the fire goes out, you’ll start feeling the cold. You’ll wake up whether you want to or not.”
