They arrive, breathless
pound the door until it breaks
and they’re tired, I mean they traveled light
speed to get here leaping synaptic gaps
to demand my attention like impatient children.
what they have to say needs to be said NOW;
or else they’ll disappear forever.
This much I’ve learned:
thoughts fear death.
The sad part is
they’re right. If I don’t write,
or remind, it’s gone and I’m left to convince myself
it really wasn’t that important anyway.
But all things are subject to entropy
thoughts, like everything else, fade to nothing
and the more I learn about their nature
the more I know
the more I find I’m able to

Aw shit, me in the future.
"So it seems as though this part of us that is living a life on Earth is only a small piece or splinter of a much larger us. That we are many rather than one, or rather pieces of a more complex whole. We are only able to focus on the splinter we perceive as our totality. That is a good thing, because if we were aware of the complexity of it we would not be able to function in this world or reality. We are only able to see the facade that masks a much larger picture. Only now are we being allowed to peek behind the veil."
—Dolores Cannon, The Convoluted Universe Book One. (via lilblucherrygrl)
The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you."
