The Quickening

Ray Peat says that life is a mystery that flowers and that it’s all about quickening. The alternative is fear and slow decay.

There are no pre-set, predetermined qualities one must seek to return to, they are drawn forth through engagement with life. Vitality is a function of quickening.

This is the difference between holding oneself in a vacuum of reluctance versus fearless quickening: or between guilt-ridden degeneration and unashamed rejuvenation.
