Happy. Just in my swim shorts, barefooted, wild-haired, in the red fire dark, singing, swigging wine, spitting, jumping, running - that’s the way to live.

The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling.
Jack Kerouac, from The Dharma Bums (Viking Press, 1958

For Kerouac, there was no real difference between the two religious leaders; the story of Siddhartha, later known as the Buddha, born in India in the fifth century BCE... who leaves the wealth and privilege to which he was born for the ascetic life of a religious wanderer, finally discovering the Four Noble Truths that form the core of Buddhism, paralleled Christ's renunciation of his divinity to take on human form.  But Buddhism did offer Kerouac a literal selflessness, a profound kind of anonymity, that Catholicism could not; Buddhism abolished, in Alan Watt's phrase, the "Good I--Bad Me" dichotomy endemic to Western thought.  If all was really "the Void" upon which men merely project their illusions, all labels are meaningless, all bets off.  "What a horror it would have been if the world was real," Ray reflects in one of the book's most haunting lines, "because if the world was real, it would be immortal."
Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums (1958) | Ann Douglas introduction.  A view through the lens of Buddhism complimented (though didn’t supplant) Kerouac’s inherited French Catholic faith.
