Hoy me topé con esto que lo dijo Leonard Cohen a quién yo no conocía.
Creo que es mas conocido por ser un cantautor Canadiense del que solo he oído una canción buscando un poco de el. Una voz grave y muy particular y una letra original tb.
Dejaré acá el trozo que me encontré, lo releí, y me dejo pensando; por lo que lo tomé y me lo traje en el bolsillo....
"Roshi [his Zen Buddhist teacher] said something nice to me one time. He said that the older you get, the lonelier you become, and the deeper the love you need. Which means that this hero that you’re trying to maintain as the central figure in the drama of your life— this hero is not enjoying the life of a hero. You’re exerting a tremendous maintenance to keep this heroic stance available to you, and the hero is suffering defeat after defeat. And they’re not heroic defeats; they’re ignoble defeats. Finally, one day you say, ‘Let him die— I can’t invest any more in this heroic position.’ From there, you just live your life as if it’s real— as if you have to make decisions even though you have absolutely no guarantee of any of the consequences of your decisions."Leonard Cohen, Spin Interview (2002)
