“Peace of mind is not the absence of conflict from life, but the ability to cope with it.” -Unknown.
It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything
most of the time there is a struggle going on somewhere. and most of that time no one can tell what’s really happening. the picture is not clear. a true artist/athlete has to rely on their own sense of experience and muscle memory to help them get to the next match up.
there is a very annoying truth about members of a fight club. that would be the omnipresent dual relationship with pain. pain is both a life long friend as well as the source of all the struggle. it’s almost like an escher drawing which portrays the same image interacting with itself in a mirror image- upside down and 180 degrees.
“Tyler Durden: Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.
