When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.

Deepak Chopra (via yearslater)

(Source: somniloquy, via quote-book)

People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.

The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.

The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.

Emily Dickinson (via moreofamore)

I’m attracted to the extreme light and the extreme dark. I’m interested in the human condition and what makes people tick. I’m interested in the things people try to hide.

It’s better to have your heart broken once by walking away than to have it break daily waiting for things to get better.

My soul is in the sky.

We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.
