While I m alive
While I’m alive I’m fully committed to autonomy, and I’m the person who can persuade the Tibetan people to accept it.
“I’ve stayed alive for you. But now you have to let me go.” -The Hours (2002)

A person is said to be established in self-realization and is called a yogi [or mystic] when he is fully satisfied by virtue of acquired knowledge and realization. Such a person is situated in transcendence and is self-controlled. He sees everything –whether it be pebbles, stones or gold — as the same. (6.8)

“The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.” – Oprah Winfrey
