    Reality is to just too real for most of us, so we temper it with the mind. True personal growth is about transcending the oart of you that is not okay and needs protection. The more you are willing to just let the world be something you're aware of, the more it will let you be who you are. When you close your heart or close your mind, you hide the darkness within you. Energy doesn't get old, it doesn't get tired, and it doesnt need food. What it needs is openness and receptivity. If you make lists of how the world must be for you to open, yoi have limited your openness to those conditions. You are not your heart, you are the experiences of your heart. Life becomes stagnant when people protect their stored issues. Live life instead of fearing it, fighting it. One of the essential requirements for true spiritual growth and deep personal transformation is coming to peace with pain. You cannot spend your life avoiding things that are not actually happening, or everything will become negative. A piece of infinity... You will never find yourself in what you have built to define yourself. You can get really good at this game of creating someone. Don't allow events to leave impressions i side of you. You must learn to be comfortable with psychogical disturbance. There is no need for false solidity when you are at peace with the universal expanse of your true Being. You don't want your happiness to be conditional upon the behavior of other people. it's bad enough that your happiness is conditional upon your own behavior. The greatest gift one can give to God is to be pleased with His creation. Letting go of yourself is the simplest way to get closer to others. If you live life fully, you won't have any last wishes. you will have lived them every moment. Life itself is your career, and your interaction with life is your most meaningful relationship.

    Sometimes being lucky is waiting for a fall. This is my true religion: arbitrary moments of nearly painful happiness for a life i feel privileged to lead. Every mother has the assurance that her baby will love her. But a baby has no assurance at all of being loved in return. I wake up with my pal and go to bed with my lover. He still thrills me, not only sexually but because of the way he regards the life that unfolds around him. If we live more than once, I want to find him again.

    I must endure the presence of two or three caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies. It is more difficult to judge oneself than to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself rightly, then you are indeed a man of true wisdom. Conceited people never hear anything but praise. Words are the source of misunderstanding. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. One runs the risk of weeping a little, if one lets himself be tamed...
