Quotes: Taoist quote fused into humanist/secular aesthetics. Conceptualized as a possibility.

Arna-Mackic-Popina-830x553
(Image above is from (All credit due): https://www.failedarchitecture.com/mortal-cities-and-forgotten-monuments/ The Warriors’ Mausoleum Serbia (1981).  Despite the design and architectural concepts relating to socialist idealism.  What I salvage from these, now neglected, monuments, is the fusion of Eastern philosophy, namely Zen and Taoist insights to Western humanist and secular ritualization.)

“Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”  Lao Tzu
