No One is listening

If you listen and pay close attention to what is, 
you will discover that there is no past, no future, 
and no one listening.

You cannot hear yourself listening. 
You live in the eternal now and you are that. 
It is really extremely simple, and that is the way it is."
— Alan Wilson Watts




"Breathe in, breath out. 
Oxygen is carcinogenic and likely puts a limit on our life span. 
It would be unwise though, to try to extend life by not breathing at all.

Which of us doesn't do it?
Either we loll in anaerobic stupor, 
too afraid to fill our lungs with risky beauty, 
                                                                  By Audrey Kawasaki

or we roll out fire like dragons, 
destroying the world we love..."

— Jeanette Winterson

Walk softly, live gently...

What can i tell you about the choices we make? 
Fate reads like the polar opposite of decision, 
and so much of life reads like fate.

The pull of past and future is so strong 
that the present is crushed by it. 
We lie helpless in the force of patterns inherited 
and patterns re-enacted by our own behavior.
~Jeanette Winterson

How people treat you is their karma;
how you react is yours. "

A second of wakefulness

"Do you wake up as I do, 
having forgotten what it is that hurts or where, 
until you move? 

 There is a second of consciousness that is clean again. 
 A second that is you, without memory or experience, 
the animal warm and waking into a brand new world. 

There is the sun dissolving the dark, 
and light as clear as music, 
filling the room where you sleep 
and the other rooms 
behind your eyes."

                                                                   Quotes- Jeanette Winterson

Dream well tonight...



Don't Resist the Flow

"...The point is, not to resist the flow. You go up when you're supposed to go up and down when you're supposed to go down. When you're supposed to go up, find the highest tower and climb to the top. When you're supposed to go down, find the deepest well and go down to the bottom.

When there is no flow, stay still. If you resist the flow, everything dries up. If everything dries up, the world is darkness. 'I am he and/ He is me:/ Spring nightfall.' Abandon the self, and there you are."
— Haruki Murakami 

"Precipitate as weather, 
she appeared from somewhere, 
 then evaporated, leaving only memory." 



There is this other place...

To be ill adjusted to a deranged world is not a breakdown
I have a theory that every time you make an important choice,
the part of you left behind continues the other life you could have had.

*quotes by Jeanette Winterson

Time that withers you will wither me. 
We will fall like ripe fruit and roll down the grass together. 
Dear friend, let me lie beside you watching the clouds 
until the earth covers us and we are gone.



That Secret Nothing...

"If you have to choose between something that has form
and something that doesn't, go for the one without form.
That's my rule. Whenever I run into a wall I follow that rule,
and it always works out. Even if it's hard going at the time."
~ Haruki Murakami

I tell everything, but I do not say it,
because my friend, it is better
your secret be spoken by you.


The Reset Button

"...I have this strange feeling that I'm not myself anymore. 
It's hard to put into words, but I guess it's like I was fast asleep, 
and someone came, disassembled me, 
and hurriedly put me back together again. 
That sort of feeling." ~Murakami

It's time to press
the re-set button.

Let's fly...
There's a system here somewhere


We'll fly tomorrow

Time weighs down on you like an old, ambiguous dream. 
You keep on moving, trying to sleep through it. 
But even if you go to the ends of the earth, 
you won't be able to escape it. 
Still, you have to go there- to the edge of the world.
There's something you can't do unless you get there... 

Will it make a difference anywhere else
when you know you are the place you need to visit?

Sleep now...
We'll fly tomorrow...
