The Year of the Earth Dog
Para muchos de nosotros, el agua potable es tan abundante y fácilmente disponible, que rara vez, si alguna vez, hacemos una pausa para considerar cómo sería la vida sin ella
“Solía entrar en una habitación de personas y me preguntaba si les gusto a mí ... ahora miro a mi alrededor y me pregunto si me gustan.”
“when it’s time for you to love, you’re going to love, the same way when it’s time for you to hurt, you are going to hurt. you’re going to hurt, your life is perfectly balanced, you will hurt and love, when its necessary Nothing more, nothing less.” RMD
“ Truth is a pathless land. Man cannot go through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest, ritual, nor through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding, of contents of his own mind, through observation and through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection.”
"Do not fast forward into something you're not ready for or allow yourself to shrink back into what is comfortable. Growth lives in uneasiness, the in-between, the unfinished sentence. You are season of becoming...."
“Sometimes we are living the in-between times: when we’re no longer who we used to be. But we haven’t yet arrived at our next stage either… we’re always on the road to the next stage, whether we are days old or decades old. The spirit of life is diminished by the time. In the present moment, our task is to let go of what was with love or even somehow embrace what emerges next….” -Marianne Williamson
"And as you go through another year of healing, I want you to know that you cannot rush the soul. It’s okay to take your time. Be patient with yourself. Nothing good ever comes out of things done in a rush. And believe me, when the healing is complete, you will know. You will feel it in your bones. No matter how long it takes for you to get there, just know you will get there. Just be patient." -TH
"Solitude is dangerous, to reason without being favorable to virtue. Remember that solitary mortal is certainly luxurious, probably superstitous, and possible mad.... it's very addictive" -Samuel Johnson
“you have to allow yourself to break apart, that’s the only way you’re going to know what you are made of. Let yourself go. Let yourself fall. Let yourself drown. Let yourself shatter. And above all, let yourself get hurt. Do all these things and know…. you have really know your demons to defeat them. Befriend them. Love them and walk with them. That’s the only way you’re going to grow.”
“So I wander, wander where my home is, where I come from
how the makers sowed it.
Like Constellations, how we all connected
In a heart- all rows intersecting
True blue ocean the meaning feels heavy
but I let go, I let go, stay ready
By the roots of my toes I am steady…
I don’t take from the road I’ve got plenty
My home where I wander, my home is where I wander body soul.”
What I know is that I don’t know,
And now I dance, I sing, and I live full
I give it all to the call of the unknown, (I hope)
What I say, is that I don’t Say
And now I rest no stress in the holy name
All fears and my tears, I give it all away
I play like a child of the earth” – TH
"this too shall pass. It may pass like a kidney stone but it will pass."
"When it comes to love, it all comes down to timing. You can have every other damn box checked off but if the timing ain’t right, it won’t work. Be patient and trust that what is meant for you will always make its way to you in one way or the other.” Life is funny like that."
“not all goodbyes are harsh and hard. Some good-byes can be meaningful and beautiful. Some can be life changing, they can make you or break you. They give you the courage to heal, to move on, to forgive, to love yourself fiercely. The truth is, you learn a little more about yourself every time someone says goodbye.”
"Sometimes you meet someone, and it is clear that the two of you belong together on some level. As lovers, or friends, or as something entirely different. You just work, wether you understand each other or partners in crime. You meet these people throughout life and out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive."
"Everything you want is on the other side of letting go. You don't hold on because you like to hurt, you hold on because you need certainty. Because pain is familiar. But on the other side of that story that haunts you, are your dreams..."
"Sarito is a river flowing towards the ocean. Expecting the unexpected, I have everything I need to live well and take care of myself. I am open, spontaneous, trusting, free, creative, and light, loving and in tune with the whole, I am good enough, and there are now problems now. So breathe, let,s go and see the joke. Keep it simple."
