We want love, we want it to overflow and consume us, to make us something new. The important thing to remember is that we must not let that fire go out, because it’s nice to want love, but to keep it alive is what love is all about. To feed the flames of love, is to feed the flames of the soul; to pursue and encounter, to cherish and engage, this is the heart of love, this is the heart of life.
Happy Birthday Francesca Rose! You are the light of our lives! 🌹💫
Sometimes you end up never speaking to someone who meant the world to you again. And that’s okay. You cope and you survive. Don’t let your losses keep you back from new gains.
We have a fear of facing ourselves. That is the obstacle. Experiencing the innermost core of our existence is very embarrassing to a lot of people. A lot of people turn to something that they hope will liberate them without their having to face themselves. That is impossible. We can’t do that. We have to be honest with ourselves. We have to see our gut, our excrement, our most undesirable parts. We have to see them. That is the foundation of warriorship, basically speaking. Whatever is there, we have to face it, we have to look at it, study it, work with it and practice meditation with it.
I hated knowing what I wanted and knowing what was right and knowing they weren’t the same thing.
The simple, devastating fact is most loves fade eventually. And very rarely in concert. In the end I was grateful she was the one to say it - those awful words I don’t feel it anymore. Because I wouldn’t wish this ruin I’m left with on anyone. Most especially of all her.
Tell me something: where your boss at?
