I'm not a universalist, and the way I talk about final loss is this: People worship idols - money, whatever. Their humanness gets reshaped around the idol - you become like what you worship. That's one of the basic spiritual laws.
- N. T. Wright
Ghost in the Water
You want us to be young, always beautiful.
So come and drown me.
Bury me deep under the waters.
Bring flowers to my grave.
Down by the river remember me.
The ghost of the girl that never grew old.
My beauty will last forevermore.
It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, Lightly. Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.
- Aldous Huxley
She is melancholic, a dreamer, someone who longs to live in a fairytale world.
She is spirit and ash. She rides the wind.
- Brooke Shaden
There are two types of people.
The ones who live their lives, and the ones who are sleepwalking.
You need to open your eyes.
When you do, it will tear you apart. A storm will rage and uproot you. All you can do is hold on to dear life and walk through the darkness - learn to welcome it. And slowly, oh so slowly you'll begin to rebuild yourself - more stronger than you've ever been before. Fully alive and true to your heart.
You are who you choose to be. Nobody will come and save you - you've got to save yourself!
Truth is - we have to accept that everything changes all the time.
We can't stop ourselves from dying.
Man does not weave this web of life. He is merely a strand of it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
- Chief Seattle
Empire of Silence Series
Man betritt ein Reich der Stille, in dem man bedächtig der Vergangenheit lauscht.
Und alles was man hört, ist der Wiederhall in der eigenen Seele.
