“ The fear of death is basically fear of life, because only life can die. If you are afraid of death, you will be afraid of life. If you are afraid of falling down, you will be afraid of rising up, because only a wave that rises falls back. If you are afraid of being rejected you will become afraid, afraid to approach any body. If you are afraid of being rejected, you will become incapable of love. Afraid of death, you become incapable of life. Then you live just for the name’s sake, and only miseries, darkness, and night surround you.”
“ Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.”
“ If a fish is born in your aquarium and you call him John, write out a birth certificate, tell him about his family history, and two minutes later he gets eaten by another fish—that’s tragic. But it’s only tragic because you projected a separate self where there was none. You got hold of a fraction of a dynamic process, a molecular dance, and made a separate entity out of it.”
“ The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.”
I love you all no matter who you voted for.
Or your religion. Or your sexual orientation. Or your race. Or how rich/poor you are. Or if you think we are about to reach the apocalypse or not. Or how much you know, or think you know about the economy and how the country actually works, or does not work.
For many, people are allowing their beliefs to separate them from each other. Is it really Christ-like to slam others because they don’t believe the same thing you do? Or to re-inform everyone they are going to burn in Hell if they don’t change their ways? It’s sad how condescending people are on Facebook to others just because you don’t agree and how they hide behind “Christian values”, as if they aren’t trying to make people feel bad for having their own thoughts and opinions.
I hope there comes a point in time when everyone in the world can cooperate regardless of what they think/believe about these issues.
I love you America. You’re still young and naive.
