Quantum physics tells us that nothing that is observed is unaffected by the observer. 
That statement, from science, holds an enormous and powerful insight. 
It means that everyone sees a different truth, 
because everyone is creating what they see.

 Neale Donald Walsch

Sometimes, thinking of you, you dream of what you could have become. 
'You were, and you will remain, made up of possibilities.'

Every book, every volume … has a soul. 
The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens. 

Carlos Ruiz Zafrón, from The Shadow of the Wind

I like the human imagination: its delicacy, its brutal aggressive energy, 

its profundity, its power to transform the material world into art.

we were taught

We were taught a very bad philosophy, a way of looking at the world 

that contradicts who we are. 

We were taught to think thoughts like competition, struggle, sickness,

 finite resources, limitation, guilt, bad, death, scarcity, and loss. 

We were taught that things like grades, being good enough, money, 

and doing things the right way, are more important than love. 

We were taught that we’re separate from other people, 

that we have to compete to get a head, that we’re not quite good enough the way we are. 

We were taught to see the world the way that others had come to see it. 

Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.

 The spiritual journey is the relinquishment, or unlearning, 

of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts. 

Love is the essential existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth.

 To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, 

is the meaning of life.

 From ‘A Return to Love’ ~ Marianne Williamson

Go all the way with it. Do not back off. 

For once, go all the goddamn way with what matters.

Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, 
but from wanting to control it.

Khalil Gibran

Want the change. Be inspired by the flame
where everything shines as it disappears.

Is it safer to be gray and numb?
What turns hard becomes rigid
and is easily shattered.

Pour yourself like a fountain.
Flow into the knowledge that what you are seeking
finishes often at the start, and, with ending, begins.

 Rainer Maria Rilke, from Sonnets To Orpheus

I either fully trust or tiptoe along the edges and fear trust. 
I send and receive mixed messages especially to those who have the same issues. 
It’s not a coincidence we are given the same lesson. 
Instead, it is a wake-up call to step back and sit with the mixed feelings and learn.

We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. 

It is not our purpose to become each other; 

it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other 

and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.

Hermann Hesse, Narcissus and Goldmund

True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy

Care for yourself. 
An open heart may suffer because you have moved it into dangerous territory. 
Not every situation requires your sacrifice. 
Certain types of giving move you too far from center.

be proud

Instead of focusing on how far you still have to go, take some time today to remind yourself of how far you’ve already come.Yes, you’re still struggling. And yes, you still have some distance to cover, but those things don’t discount the progress you’ve already made. Healing takes time. It’s not a process that can be rushed. Beating yourself up for not being further along doesn’t improve your situation. It makes you feel awful and it keeps you stuck. Your journey may be slow, but it’s not without promise. Despite how difficult this process has been, despite how hopeless you’ve felt, despite all of the people who have told you that you would never make it, you’ve never once given up. You’ve never stopped fighting and pushing forward. So give yourself some credit for that. It wasn’t easy. But you did it, and you deserve to be proud of yourself. Let go of this idea that you should be further ahead, and trust that it’s okay to be where you are. Trust that you won’t be here forever. Trust that you will get to where you need to be. You’re doing the best you can each day to fight the darkness you feel, and that’s all you can ask of yourself. It’s enough.

we have the key

Our bodies are storytellers. We store memories in our bodies. 

We store passion and heartache. We store joy, moments of transcendent peace. 

If we are to access these, if we are to move into them and through them, 

we must enter our bodies to do so… Our bodies hold fast to the truth.

Julia Cameron

small gestures

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.

The universe is made up of experiences that are designed to burn out your attachment, 
your clinging, to pleasure, to pain, to fear to all of it. 
And as long as there is a place where your vulnerable,
 the universe will find a way to confront you with it.
 Ram Dass

She’s always trying
to make
something whole,
something beautiful,
an image
capable of life
apart from her.
