Be kind.

I am not done.

'The most important factor in any
metaphysical exercise is the release
of belief systems, boundaries and fears.
All limitations are self-imposed.'
- Sharon A. Klingler,
quoted by Single Gun Theory
on the album 'Flow, River of My Soul'

'And a man said, Speak to us of Self-Knowledge.
And he answered, saying:
Your hearts know in silence the secrets
of the days and the nights.
But your ears thirst for the sound of
your heart's knowledge.
You would know in words that which
you have always known in thought.

You would touch with your fingers
the naked body of your dreams.
(...)The soul walks not upon a
line, neither does it grow like a reed.
The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus
of countless petals.'
- from The Prophet,
by Kahlil Gibran

Current defining characteristics:
growing certain
stubbornly clinging to ideals of reciprocity and fairness
letting go

Things I hear myself repeating:
The truth is a greased pig.
Assume nothing.
You have to be happy with yourself
before you can be happy with someone else.
Onward and upward.
'It doesn't get easier, it just gets later.'
'Enjoy this trip. And it is a trip!'

"We begin life with the world presenting itself to us as it is. Someone - our parents, teachers, analysts - hypnotises us to 'see' the world and construe it in the 'right' way. These others label the world, attach names & give voices to the beings & events in it, so that thereafter, we cannot read the world in any other language or hear it saying other things to us. The task is to break the hypnotic spell, so that we become undeaf, unblind, & multilingual, thereby letting the world speak to us in new voices & write all its possible meaning in the new book of our existence." - Sidney Jourard in Sunbeams
