The greater part of what my neighbors call good I believe in my soul to be bad, and if I repent of anything, it is very likely to be my good behavior.

Do not worry if you have built your castles in the air. They are where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. .

I have nothing to prove to people who prove nothing to me.

They do funny things to satisfy their guilt. .

It makes me laugh hysterical tears and cry hilarious laughter.

Real shit happens here...
β€’
How often do you sit down at the table face to face with yourself? How often do you summon the courage needed to meet your own eyes and look inside? How much of your existence is spent in courageous introspection? How many excuses can you think up?
β€’
Too hard? Ok, instead, how about going onto social media to just curate your braveness, rightness, purity, morality, acceptance of everyone and love for all. You know you will sometimes show it out in the real world but most times not. How does the effort you spend creating this image you want measure up to the actual time spent living in the way of your image?
β€’
How prepared, well versed and schooled are you in your darkness? How comfortable are you walking into the spotlight of your own shadow? Can you dance in it? Can you dive down to hug your depths? Is it possible for you to find the acceptance inside yourself to really, truly, unconditionally love yourself?
β€’
Time to pull up a chair...

When you choose to remain unaware of the broken and sadness within yourself, you end up creating that in the world, inadvertently participating in structures that continue to support injustice and violence. Hate stems from self-hate. The things you keep hidden from yourself will always end up leaking out through your cracks, always. The resulting projection upon the world then comes tumbling out in varying degrees of intensity all (usually) under the radar of your conscious knowledge.
The greatest sadness today is that everything happening in our world is an outward manifestation of all that remains unprocessed inside each and every single one of us. The greatest opportunity today is that every person on this planet can heal the world by first understanding that healing ourselves matters. We all contain the power and capability to heal our world.
β€’
Think you don't have anything you need to heal from? Then you didn't sit down with yourself for a long enough talk. Everyone of us needs to break through the illusive and very tricky barriers in our own psyches that tell us we are somebody special, that life owes us something, and that our truth is the absolute truth. *cont in comments⬇

ADRIFT! A little boat adrift!
And night is coming down!
Will no one guide a little boat
Unto the nearest town?

I am no one. I am important and I am insignificant. I know everything and I know nothing. Are you no one?

🎢 It's just me, myself, and I
Solo ride until I die
Cuz I got me for life

I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul 🎢

Her lustre is that of a strong flash of lightning

Her sweet murmur is like the indistinct hum of swarms of love mad bees
β€’
She produces melodious poetry...

It is she who maintains all the beings of the world by means of inspiration and expiration,

May the fire swallow you whole
Consuming you entirely
.
The whole world, everything in existence, is governed by expansion containment and contraction expression and the delicate balance of these two forces. β€’Inhalation/Exhalation, Inspiration/Expirationβ€’. How we choose to express these energies is how we conduct ourselves in the world. First in body, then psychologically and culminating in a social/spiritual exhibition of all that we view we are in relation to others in time and space. To become aware of this inner pressure, this subtle ebb and flow of spirit is to find true medicine and to find the power in the space between these forces, the pause, is to find true freedom.✌️πŸ”₯

And I'd choose you;
in a hundred lifetimes,
in a hundred worlds,
in any version of reality,
I'd find you and
I'd choose you.

A true soul mate is a mirror,
the person who shows you everything
that is holding you back,
the person who brings you
to your own attention
so you can change your life.

there lies truth in my heartbeats
does the cloud hear the sound?
the flushing, the heat, terrifying fear...
can the cloud smell the ground?
.

there lies deception in my tissues
does the cloud feel the flood?
trying so fucking hard, existence...
can the cloud taste my blood?
.

i will never give up, i will never believe
i know that i know
can the cloud see me grieve?
