A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp. And the world seems so fresh as though it had all just come into existence. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.

My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.
The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
Being alone is better than sitting next to a lover and feeling lonely.
I told her once I wasn’t good at anything. She told me survival is a talent.
You don’t have to let go of anything. You have to realize that everything has let go of you. You are not attached to anything in reality. Everything will die and change regardless of your love and attachment.
The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.

I’d woken up early and I took a long time getting ready to exist.
Do not chase people. Be you and do your own thing and work hard. The right people who belong in your life will come to you, and stay.
Whoever wants music instead of noise, joy instead of pleasure, soul instead of gold, creative work instead of business, passion instead of foolery, finds no home in this trivial world of ours.”

Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift
Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.

The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly—you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you. This is the disease. You believe that you are your mind. This is the delusion. The instrument has taken you over.
