You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place. Like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.

THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)

Set your life on fire.
Seek those who fan your flames.

Who gets up early to discover the moment the light begins?
What was whispered to the rose to break it open last night was whispered to my heart.

You’ve gotten drunk on so many kinds of wine.
Taste this. It won’t make you wild.

It’s fire.
Give up, if you don’t understand by this time that your living is firewood.

Set your life on fire.
Seek those who fan your flames.

The lamps are different,
But the Light is the same.
To change, a person must face the dragon of his appetites with another dragon, the life-energy of the soul.

What is the body?
That shadow of a shadow of your love, that somehow contains the entire universe.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and attend them all!

Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
Sorrows are the rags of old clothes and jackets that serve to cover, and then are taken off.

That undressing, and the beautiful naked body underneath, is the sweetness that comes after grief.
You haven’t dared yet lose faith – so how can faith grow in you?

Gamble everything for love, if you’re a true human being.
If these poems repeat themselves, then so does Spring.

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī (via salonduthe)

It’s quite an undertaking to start loving somebody. You have to have energy, generosity, blindness. There is even a moment right at the start where you have to jump across an abyss: if you think about it you don’t do it.

 Jean-Paul Sartre, Nausea (via whyallcaps)

What I have been learning with you

First, it is possible to start again. Jealous is healthy but to control it is to have maturity and self-confidence. People are always unstable and problematic. Freedom is not abandonment. To show feelings for someone is not a sign of weakness. Sometimes, you need to take a chance and risk getting hurt. Honesty is much more important than fidelity. “No matter what you do, just always come back to me” was the most harsh and honest love confession I have ever heard. To appreciate the sound of words when they are sung. To enjoy pleasing. When someone cares about you, they will show it all the time, not just by saying “I’m sorry”. There are many different ways to be connected with someone. To understand the unsaid words, to hear the look in someone’s eyes. Abandonment is not freedom. To not feel threaten. To not ache. To not think so much. To act. To not say I love you unless you are completely aware of its meaning and weight. To be prepared to hear I love you. To touch, to lick, to suck. To trust once again. To be aware of the end and to have the willingness to live it anyway. 

I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.
