"Always find time for the things that make you feel happy to be alive."
Shamelessly addicted to the stand battles on Bring It.
"Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now."
Every weekday at 2:45 I yearn to be dead. Not physically because I do love life. I want to kill the routines, destroy the trivial and live free in the beating heart of the universe. I’ve made progress in this, just enough progress to make me supremely uncomfortable with my sleepwalking life. I’m currently in that rough place where the old is rapidly becoming unacceptable and unendurable but nothing new has arisen to take its place. And ARGH, just ARGH. There are somethings that are precious beyond precious like my children, my pets, my desire to know the truth of who I am, my essential need to live in harmony with this truth. All that I know right now is that I am not in harmony with this truth, whatever it is, and that dissonance is harsh and feels infinite. The path to enlightenment can be a real bitch.
"Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal."
