If you can see a future without me and that doesn’t break your heart then we’re not doing what I thought we were doing here.
When someone tells you, “I love you,” and then you feel, “Oh, I must be worthy after all,” that’s an illusion. That’s not true. Or someone says, “I hate you,” and you think, “Oh, God, I knew it; I’m not very worthy,” that’s not true either. Neither one of these thoughts hold any intrinsic reality. They are an overlay. When someone says, “I love you,” he is telling you about himself, not you. When someone says, “I hate you,” she is telling you about herself, not you. World views are self views—literally.
One. Do not promise when you’re happy.
Two. When you are angry, do not respond.
Three. Do not decide when you’re sad.
To stand with no umbrella in the rain because the rain is just the sky wanting to touch you. Listen to the birds and crickets chirping away because everything with sound has a song to sing… and anything that breathes has something to say So listen. Just because this thing called reality tells you that you can’t breathe stars, snuggle with clouds, french kiss raindrops, or grow ﬂowers in your hands You can! People told me that I couldn’t do a lot of things and I believed them for a while but I’m doing them now. I’m practicing hugs and handshakes because that’s what saves people.
