God speaks to each of us as we are made,
then walks with us silently out of the night.
These are the words, the numinous words,
we hear before we begin:
You, called forth by your senses
reach to the edge of your longing.
Become my body
grow like a fire behind things
so their shadows spread
and cover me completely
Let everything into you;
beauty and terror.
Keep going, remember
no feeling lasts forever
Don’t lose touch with me.
Nearby is the land they call life,
you will know it by its intensity.
Give me your hand.
“Illusion holds power over you when you are not able to remember that you are a powerful spirit that has taken on the physical experience for the purpose of learning. It has power over you when you are compelled by wants and impulses and values of your personality. It holds power over you when you fear and hate and sorrow and fester in anger or strike out in rage. It has NO power over you when you LOVE, when compassion opens your heart to others, when your creativity flows unimpeded joyously into the present moment. In other words, the illusion had no power over a personality that is fully aligned with the soul.”
— Gary Zukav
The Ultimate Reality is that everything you think you need, you already have. It exists inside of you. Indeed, it is you. You are what you need - and therefore, you give yourself everything you need in any given moment.
I’m ALWAYS nervous. Every since I was a little kid I’ve had nervous habits and anxiety. It seems like my social anxiety and general nervousness is getting worse. Do you think it’s possible to overcome this or should I turn to medicine?
You need to meditate. You need to know that you are a…
People are always asking me, “Do you believe in God?” When they ask me that I ask them, “Do you believe in Love?” I believe in Love. I think everybody has it in them and it’s all the same Love. I don’t need to personify a human emotion. If what you believe makes you happy and you’re not hurting anyone else, I don’t want you to think any different. Who the hell am I to judge you? Just bear me that same respect, please. We are all different. It’s all about freedom and personal liberty. I don’t fuck with you, don’t fuck with me.
If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.
There are certain people who come into your life, and leave a mark. Their place in your heart is tender; a bruise of longing, a pulse of unfinished business. Just hearing their names pushes and pulls at you in a hundred ways, and when you try to define those hundred ways, describe them even to yourself, words are useless.
It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present and their past, but you’d be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often then not, it’s lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.
Life is interesting. Sometimes you know exactly what’s happening and other times you want to scream because everything coming at you is unexpected. Right now im living the latter. Well, at least i’d like to think so! Right now I wish I was on a plane to somewhere…even though I am very content…
God is love. I don’t think He cares about religion one little bit. Live your life right. Love with all your heart. Don’t hurt others, and help those in need. That’s all you need to know. And don’t worry about heaven. If it exists, you’ll be welcome.
