You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
live your life
for other people.
You’ve got to do
what’s right for you,
even if it hurts some
people you love.
The most incredible thing is that so much happens outside of the will. You can’t will anything. Not even solitude is an act of will. You simply endure it. You must hold on until the very end, without weakening. You can do nothing else. But you must not believe that because you accept being nothing, you are anyone special.
It is okay to be at a place of struggle. Struggle is just another word for growth. Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then.
In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding; it is their indication of real and important progress.
The only one who doesn’t struggle is the one who doesn’t grow.
So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign
— and celebrate your struggle.

In the end, even a simple word space, paragraph or full stop carries the weight of centuries of tradition and evolution.

The magic thing
about home is

good to leave,
and it feels even better
to come back.
Love isn’t only love. It’s hard work, and trust, and tears, with even a few glimpses of devastation. But at the end of each day, if you can still look at the person at your side and can’t imagine anyone else you’d rather have there, the pain and heartache and the ups and downs of love are worth it.
I can’t explain
what I mean.
And even if i could,
I’m not sure I’d
feel like it.
Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, you must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.
Stupid dreams. Even the good ones are bad, because they remind you how poorly reality measures up.
You think you’re waiting for help. For someone to tell you what the right thing to do is. Even though, at the back of your mind, you already know what that is. So all you’re really waiting for, is a time when you’re forced to do it.
