Crazy Wisdom

So we've totally violated the rules of consistent posting during the past few weeks as we have been either out at the beach or focused on the business. Sorry about that.

But we're back(ish) and we're struck by a re-read of a 2009 Shambhala Sun interview with author Tom Robbins extolling the virtues of "crazy wisdom." When asked for a definition Robbins says that "crazy wisdom is a philosophical worldview that recommends swimming against the tide, cheerfully seizing the short end of the stick, embracing insecurity, honoring paradox, courting the unexpected, celebrating the unfamiliar, shunning each and every orthodoxy, volunteering for those tasks nobody else wants or dares to do, and perhaps, above all else, breaking taboos in order to destroy their power. It's the wisdom of those who turn the tables on despair by lampooning it and who neither seek authority nor submit to it."

And when asked, what's the point of all that? Robbins says when we pursue crazy wisdom we are able to, "enlarge the soul, light up the brain, and liberate the spirit. Crazy wisdom is both transformative and transcendent." Let's do that.
