If we can only come to our senses and feel it …

You must learn to heed your senses. Humans use but a tiny percentage of theirs. They barely look, they rarely listen, they never smell, and they think that they can only experience feelings through their skin. But they talk, oh, do they talk. When you concentrate on the world of the physical senses, it draws you in. Then your emotional and mental reactions draw you further. At that point, you are no longer sitting in the centered Self; you are absorbed in the inner show you are watching.

I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.




I’ve learned to get really good at this – say one thing when I’m thinking about something else, act like I’m listening when I’m not, pretend to be calm and happy when I’m really freaking out. It’s one of the skills you perfect as you get older.

Most everything you think you know about me is nothing more than memories.

I discovered that my obsession for having each thing in the right place, each subject at the right time, each word in the right style, was not the well-deserved reward of an ordered mind but just the opposite: a complete system of pretense invented by me to hide the disorder of my nature. I discovered that I am not disciplined out of virtue but as a reaction to my negligence, that I appear generous in order to conceal my meanness, that I pass myself off as prudent because I am evil-minded, that I am conciliatory in order not to succumb to my repressed rage, that I am punctual only to hide how little I care about other people’s time. I learned, in short, that love is not a condition of the spirit but a sign of the zodiac.

Success is never final. Failure is never fatal. It is courage that counts.

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

Your perspective on life comes from the cage you were held captive in.

It is almost as if we are all playing a big game of hide-and-go-seek. We all hide expecting to be found, but no one has been labeled the seeker. We stand behind the wall, at first excited, then worried, then bored, then anxious, then angry. We hide and hide. After a while, the game is not fun anymore. Where is my seeker? Where is the person who is supposed to come find me here in my protected shell and cut me open? Where is that one who will make me trust him, make me comfortable, make me feel whole? Some people rot on the spot, waiting for the seeker that never comes. The most truth that can relate to you, if you are hiding and waiting, is that the seeker is you and the world, behind so many walls, awaits.

I was smiling yesterday, I am smiling today and I will smile tomorrow.

My heart sank into my shoes as I realized at last how much I wanted him. No matter what his past was, no matter what he had done. Which was not to say that I would ever let him know, but only that he moved me chemically more than anyone I had ever met, that all other men seemed pale beside him.

We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down


On your worst days you look in the mirror and call yourself pretty. Call yourself trying, call yourself surviving, call yourself learning how to get through a day, a week, a month or a year. Call yourself still learning.

Oh how we forget that everything is a choice and we can decide.


How would your life be different if…You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day…You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others.

Ask me no questions, and I‘ll tell you no lies.

It does no good to run. And it does no good to hide. But I know what it‘s like. Your brain shuts down, and you follow your instincts. Or, at least, you think you do. But you know what you‘re really doing? When you flee through the night, or crawl into your little bolt-hole? You know what‘s really guiding you? Controlling you? Pushing you on? Maybe we are running from something because we don‘t want to find out what we are running from.

there‘s nothing more intimate in life than simply being understood. And understanding someone else.

Intimacy is one of the most favorite reasons to be alive. And I dont just mean the physical aspect it leads to. I mean the number of stories and jokes, and the level of honesty and compassion that lead to the point where I can trust you with my entire body. I have come to realize that I constantly hunger for spiritual intimacy the kind where when I breathe you in, it sets my lungs on fire. The kind where you can look me in the eyes and make me feel completely bare.
