infinite, divine being disguised as a successful person who has
accumulated a certain amount of stuff. The stuff is not you. For that
reason, you must avoid being attached to it in any way."

A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.
"Never follow your passion, but by all means, bring it with you."
When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.
Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far then you ever dreamed yourself to be.
(rainer maria rilke)
i beg you.... to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. don`t search for the answers, which could not be given you now, because you would not be able to live them. and the point is... , to live everything. live the questions now. perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without ever noticing it, live your way into the answer...

Yin Yang (in the West it's referred to as Yin and Yang) defined:
Yin-Yang. Yin corresponds to darkness, coldness, dampness and Earth; yang to light, warmth, dryness and Heaven. They are in constant conflict, but neither force can ever completely vanquish the other.
The two opposite energies in Chinese thought, from whose interaction and fluctuation the universe and its diverse forms emerge. They are the polar extremes of the unbounded Tao of the supreme and ultimate source (t'ai-chi) and from their intermingling arise the five elements (wu-hsing), which give rise to the myriad of forms, and to history and time. The yin-yang symbol expresses this interaction, the with the two spots (white in the dark, dark in the white) indicating that each of the two contains the seed of the other and is about to produce the replication of its opposite in interaction. All oppositions can be mapped onto yin and yang, yin representing e.g. the feminine, yielding, receptive, moon, water, clouds, even numbers, and the yang the masculine, hard, active, red, the sun, and odd numbers.
Two principles in Chinese philosophy and religion: yin represents a dark, negative, feminine figure, and yang symbolizes a positive, light, masculine figure. Together they are believed to influence the destinies of other people and things. Also, some refer to the dark segment as the autumnal equinox, the light section as the vernal equinox, the dark dot as the summer solstice, and the light dot as the winter solstice, thus representing the entire celestial phenomenon of seasons and the cycle of the sun.
I'm thinkin about getting a Yin Yang tattoo... anyone like any of the above? Have any ideas?

Problems and personal challenges are never-ending. As long as we are experiencing new ones we know we are growing. If the same problem keeps popping up it means we need to apply ourselves diligently in that area of our life. We learn from our experiences sooner or later.
