Things I Want YOU To Know

There is an art to being single. It is not just the absence of a significant other. [Thanks, Noelle ;)]

The simpler, the better.

Thinking about it is not nearly as fun as doing it.

Fear rarely comes from outside of you.

Anyone who holds you to any given expectation has ceased to see you as you truly are. You can exceed, you can underachieve. Either way, we need to learn to deal with it and move on.

We put divisions between people to make ourselves seem better. There isn't nearly as much that divides us as we think. And thinking that we're all the same is the same as thinking we aren't. We exclude against the one person who isn't the same and kill ourselves trying to make them fit. As Gandhi said, humanity is an ocean.

You don't need to be awkward.

You don't need to be angry.

You don't need to be happy.

You don't need to feel good.

You need to be honest.

You aren't fooling anyone. You're just as big a mess as the rest of us.

You are a sinner.

You can be saved. In fact, you've already been paid for, you've just got to acknowledge it.

I don't want you to agree with me. I want you to dialogue with me.

The life of a consumer is not satisfying.

The life of a servant under a righteous master is the most beautiful, necessary, and powerful life there is.

You were created to serve the Creator. If you're not serving him, you're always serving someone.

Who you are in private is never who you are with other people, even on your best day. Don't fool yourself.

Develop harmony between what you think, what you say, and what you do.

If you feel that you want something, WANT it. Want it more than anything.

Courage comes AFTER, not before.

Silence is more than okay.

Sex isn't the end all be all.

Focus. Clear your mind and focus.

Stop beating yourself up. Approve of yourself. Love yourself. Never neglect yourself.

Place your focus outward. It's better for you and for the world.

I believe all of this.

None of it is easy.

Learn to smell what you love. Learn what it tastes like, looks like, sounds like, feels like. Because most days, you'll only have one sense to go by and you cannot afford to let it go.

Never panic. You can handle it.

Breathe. Got to sleep with peace, wake up with hope.

None of this is ethereal. It is right here. Right now. It is yours if you reach out and take it.

Be here in this moment, always. Let the past lay where it lay and the future stay in its place.

Don't worry, it's already taken care of.
