Stop that, Dane.

Don’t be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen.

One person walks into your life and suddenly your whole world changes. I am so grateful. I am so undeserving. I don’t think this happens to everyone.

Nothing you will confront exists without its opposite. If you are too weak to fight against it, think about the opposite and use it to defeat the problematic matter. You were born with the ability to find these opposites, develop them and use them for your good – it is an ability no one can hinder. So, when you feel strained, use your human stamina and say to yourself: “It is exhausting, but I will persevere”. If your mind confronts agitation, use your ability to calm your self and say to yourself: “I am a human being and I can stay calm if I want to”. Whenever you face something you do not enjoy, remind yourself of your powers to find the opposite and your ability to defeat its influence on your deeds.

Anonymous asked: What does joy look, smell, sound, taste, and/or feel like for you?

This is such a brilliant, thought provoking question. I have so many answers. God bless your dear heart. I’m approaching this one creatively? Who are you? 

I am outside, walking. Each footstep is an imprint on the ground. A soft breeze blows the tassels of my dark blue hair across my face and I can hear the trees murmuring. Every green leaf is illuminated in the golden hour. Ephemeral clouds burst and break like crashing waves in the sky. I am taken back to every moment. I am sprung forward into the future. The sun promises to sink beneath the horizon, but also ensures those extra, fleeting glimpses of absolutely beatific sunlight before slipping away. I am at peace. I can feel the intent of the universe in the veins of the trees, in the rustling of the wind, in the water that makes up most of my body. Everything is crystal clear. It all makes sense. Everything is liquid, molecules dancing back and forth, ever so slightly moving—alive. The beauty of nature is easy to recognize. A mountain will always be great. The ocean will always be powerful. But a single leaf—-when you can learn to love a single leaf, then you can know real joy.

Everything seems to be exhausting me, no matter how much sleep or how much coffee I drink or how long I lie down, something inside me seems to have given up. My soul is tired.

It gets weirder and harder every time and I need you to be stronger than I am.

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

Gautama Buddha (via observando)

You can ask the universe for all the signs you want, but ultimately, we see what we want to see when we’re ready to see it.
