“ I wish I wrote the way I thought;
With maddening hunger.
I’d write to the point of suffocation.
I’d write myself into nervous breakdowns,
Manuscripts spiralling out like tentacles into abysmal nothing.
And I’d write about you
a lot more
than I should.
“ It’s beautiful when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you’ve built up around your mind and let them inside.
“ Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or self-confidence.
“ Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.
“ What’s the line between our own, in-brain knowledge and the sea of information around us? Does it make us smarter when we can dip in so instantly? Or dumber with every search?
“ Everyone is my teacher. Some I seek. Some I subconsciously attract. Often I learn simply by observing others. Some may be completely unaware that I’m learning from them, yet I bow deeply in gratitude.
“ If you want your life to be a magnificent story, then begin by realizing that you are the author.
“ There are people we meet in life who miss being important to us by inches, days, or heartbeats. Another place or time or a different emotional frame of mind and we would willingly fall into their arms; gladly take up their challenge or invitation. But as it is, we encounter them when we are discontent or content and they are not. Whatever they are, we are not and vice versa. Two trains going in different directions that pass for a few powerful moments at full speed, blasting noise and wind but then they are gone. Whatever serious chemistry might have been possible if, isn’t.
Even though I had recently taken a hiatus from twitter, I still wasn’t ready to let it all go.
I mean… I put numerous hours of effort, thought, heart, soul and mind into it. Although I had to sideline it temporarily, I wasn’t ready to bid adieu to it, overall.
But, I had deactivated, and failed to reactivate within the 30 day period. So, under no choice of my own….I am done with my twitter career, at least for now.
I’m grateful for all the people I met through there, ESP my soulmate. I appreciate everything I learned about myself throughout my twitter journey. And I will always remember the joy and elation I felt, when posting a really great tweet.
It was an adventure…a learning experience. And, now….it’s on to the next one.
“ The whole essence of Zen consists in walking along the razor’s edge of Now - to be so utterly, so completely present that no problem, no suffering, nothing that is not who you are in your essence, can survive in you. In the Now, in the absence of time, all your problems dissolve. Suffering needs time; it cannot survive in the Now.
