Close your eyes and Imagine...

       Close your eyes and imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it.

In your arms...

I seek the counsel of your heartbeat
and the calm song of your voice,
your warm breath and the security
of your gentle touch — my soul rests
quietly and peacefully, in your arms.

~Terri Guillemets, "Serenity found," 2009

Circle of one's personality...

I must reconsider my position, as I cannot go on living here as I am doing, though I know that there is no such thing as changing one's life: one merely wanders round and round within the circle of one's own personality. 

~Oscar Wilde (1854–1900), letter to Robert Ross

Living now...

The meaning of life is not to be discovered only after death in some hidden, mysterious realm; on the contrary, it can be found by eating the succulent fruit of the Tree of Life and by living in the here and now as fully and creatively as we can.

~ Paul Kurtz

It's magic...

Our time here is magic! It's the only space you have to realize whatever it is that is beautiful, whatever is true, whatever is great, whatever is potential, whatever is rare, whatever is unique, in. It's the only space. 
~ Ben Okri

Shall we not revenge???

If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?

~William Shakespeare

Death...

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.

I'm at a point in life...

I'm at a point in life where I no longer care about losing friendship or relationships.
I don't even speak to some of my family and it doesn't bother me one bit. People come and go. I'm not here to chase anyone or beg for friendship or loyalty. If you feel me and if we vibe, then that's what's up. If not, then it is, what it is. See ya.

When you create chaos....

My art is not limited to the songs I create but also to the reaction it creates. I like to sit back and look at the whole thing as if it's a tornado that I'm controlling. It's creating chaos. When you create chaos, ideas are turned upside down, and everybody looks at things in a different way.

Thoughts of you...


Is there nowhere left a spot
Where the thought of you is not?
I have sought it everywhere,
Woods and waters, field and air...
I have tried to think on Heaven,
 White-clad angels, souls forgiven—
 What are all such holy things?
 Only thoughts of you—with wings!

~Margaret Widdemer (1884–1978), "Thought of You," The Factories, With Other Lyrics, 1915

Left my soul content...

Last night—I cannot know which way it came
Or what star-way it went—
There was a little dream without a name
That left my soul content...


~Margaret Widdemer (1884–1978), "The Joyous Dream," The Factories, With Other Lyrics, 1915

Without wondering....

Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering. 

~St. Augustine

Flowers are evil...

Flowers are evil, because they live to die for the love of other people. You don’t believe me? Try it for yourself and see if you’ll be good afterwards. Undeath is a way of life, for some things. That doesn’t make it good or anything. Especially anything. Nothing makes anything anything. Because nothing is a serious matter, and anything just is.

~ Will Advise, Nothing is here...          

Dreaming or awake...

 “And then, just at that moment, when I'm no longer sure if I'm dreaming or awake or walking some valley in between where everything you wish for comes true, I feel the flutter of his lips on mine."

~Lauren Oliver

Patience..

Patience doesn't mean making a pact with the devil of denial, ignoring our emotions and aspirations. It means being wholeheartedly engaged in the process that's unfolding, rather than ripping open a budding flower or demanding a caterpillar hurry up and get that chrysalis stage over with.

Conscious and unconscious...

Feelings aroused by the touch of someone's hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith - all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well. 
Bernie Siegel




Of all the music that reached farthest into heaven, it is the beating of a loving heart. 
Henry Ward Beecher

So do I....

There are as many worlds as there are kinds of days, and as an opal changes its colors and its fire to match the nature of a day, so do I.

~ John Steinbeck

Do not watch...










Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again.

Simple.. Yet strong..

She was fierce. She was simple. She was crazy and always had something to say. She had flaws, but when she was down she got right back up. She was a beast in her own way but one word described her best… Strong!
