When you think outside the box, the box goes away.

A Quote by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. on paradigm, box, trapped, and life

To the as-yet unborn, to all innocent wisps of undifferentiated nothingness: Watch out for life. 

I have caught life. I have come down with life.   I was a wisp of undifferentiated nothingness, and then a little peephole opened quite suddenly. Light and sound poured in. Voices began to describe me and my surroundings. Nothing they said could be appealed. They said I was a boy named Christopher Webster, and that was that. They said the year was 1968, and that was that. They said I was in Leeds, England, and that was that. 

They never shut up. Year after year they piled detail upon detail. They do it still. You know what they say now? They say the year is 1982, and that I am fifty years old.

Blah blah blah.

Kurt Vonnegut (1922 -)

A Quote by Aeon on zaadz, ceo, chief experience officer, community, social network, box, silo, and spirituality

First of all, I just want to make a distinction about who zaadz is serving. When we first came up with the idea for zaadz, we talked about creating a community for ‘spiritual’ people. Unfortunately, the word ‘spiritual’ normally conjures up a vision of groups of monks sitting in silent meditation or perhaps... a bunch of idealistic vegans.

Our big realization is that ‘spiritual’ doesn’t have to be put into a box (or a silo). We believe that spirituality is about following your soul’s purpose, whether that’s about doing yoga,  spinning poi or creating the next big thing on the web.
