If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.
Well, don’t build me up so, and you won’t have to tear me down.
I wouldn’t intentionally hurt anyone in this whole world. I wouldn’t hurt them physically or emotionally, how then can people so consistently do it to me?…I guess I’ll never measure up to anyone’s expectations. I surely don’t measure up to what I’d like to be.
Listen, smile, agree, and then do whatever the f*ck you were gonna do anyway.
Sometimes an understanding silence was better than a bunch of meaningless words.
Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for.
People come, people go – they’ll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in a favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, not the ones from the past.
In the Theravada there is a practice of chanting “Namo Buddhaya” to attain enlightenment and Nibbana.
Mahayana Masters just added the word ‘Amitabha’ to this mantra and used symbolism to explain how the process of illumination works.
They described Nibbana in terms of being a Paradise, personified the Buddha-nature as Amida and explained insights arising from meditation as Amida teaching us his wisdom.
But all the magic I have known
I’ve had to make myself.
