“Madness is somewhere inbetween chaos and having a dream.” –R.M. Drake

The urge inside is to take on new things, play in bigger ways, and set free what’s destined for us to express.

It invites chaos.

The urge inside is also to find security and predictability and order. It invites balance.

It’s all about evening out the urges. The tendency is to mitigate the first, and feed the second. Yet, without an invitation to chaos, we stay where we are.

Every now and then, I simply compile too many quotes that demonstrate what I could only attempt to say. This is one of those days.

“Our real discoveries come from chaos, from going to the place that looks wrong and stupid and foolish.” –Chuck Palahniuk

“The worst thing you could do is tame the chaos in you. It’s like being told not to feel when you’re thrown in the fire.” –R.M. Drake

“Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence.” –Buddha

“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.” –Carl Jung

“You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star.” –Friedrich Nietzsche

“All great changes are preceded by chaos.” –Deepak Chopra

“Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit.” –Henry Adams

“Introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order and everything becomes…chaos.” –The Joker

“In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” –Deepak Chopra

“Chaos was the law of nature; Order was the dream of man.” –Henry Adams

“Chaos is a friend of mine.” –Bob Dylan

“Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace a test or flunk a class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is Divine Chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourself. Breath. And enjoy the ride.” –Unknown

Got chaotic balance?

“Balance is the ability to be happy in the midst of the most chaotic… circumstance.” –Friederick Lenz
