Personal Autonomy


Personal autonomy is the work of our imagination, not the way we live. Yet we have been thrown into a time in which everything is provisional. New technologies alter our lives daily. The traditions of the past cannot be retrieved. At the same time we have little idea of what the future will bring. We are forced to live as if we were free.

Straw Dogs, John Grey, 2004.

Listen with only one purpose: to allow the other person to express himself and find relief from his suffering.

Anger, Thich Nhat Hanh, 2001.
