Huxley has a profound understanding of himself and others.

Remember, words are for play and don't embody, only momentarily possess. *The following is from Aldous Huxley, "The Island."

The Discipline of Do Easy - from a story in “Exterminator!” by William S Burroughs:

"DE is a way of doing. DE simply means doing whatever you do in the easiest most relaxed way you can manage which is also the quickest and most efficient way, as you will find as you advance in DE.You can start right now tidying up your flat, moving furniture or books, washing dishes, making tea, sorting papers. Don’t fumble, jerk, grab an object. Drop cool possessive fingers onto it like a gentle old cop making a soft arrest.”

I dig that, a structural interpretation of Huxley's meaning. Burroughs' quote reminds me of a phrase by an unknown author, "If you see something that needs to be done and it will only take 5 minutes or less, do it now."

Understanding that life is long, and full of uncontrollable chaos; realizing you make up a mere fraction of humanity. With that in mind, don't worry about fixing the world or anybody else, simply concern yourself, with yourself. People with always try to suck you into their world, plaguing humanity with their problems, when you have plenty of your own. Don't let ideas become you, only let ideas momentarily possess you.
