Lilly’s book emerged from years of rigorous, intensive, even ruthless investigations of his mind confined in experimental-experiential conditions that went beyond even the walled-in fasting cave of the Tibetan master or the deep labyrinthine caves of the ancient shaman—namely the flotation tank, which eliminates input from other humans and from outer sense impressions as well as the effects of gravity on the nervous system.

When you walk through the gateway of your sacred purpose, you walk into yourself. Like the great wall of karma, it protects you from unconscious forces and holds your process safe. Blessingly buffered from the madness of the world, your purpose filters out those relationships and energies that undermine your expansion. Infused with vitality and a clarified focus, new pathways of possibility appear where before there were obstacles. Life still has its challenges, but you interface with them differently, coated in an authenticity of purpose that sees through the veils to what really matters. The rivers of essence rise up to meet you, carrying you from one wave of expansion to another…
Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.
Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild (via enigmatic-being)
Don’t settle down and sit in one place. Move around, be nomadic, make each day a new horizon. You are still going to live a long time…and it would be a shame if you did not take the opportunity to revolutionize your life and move into an entirely new realm of experience….My point is that you do not need me or anyone else…The only person you are fighting is yourself and your stubbornness…
