Now Playing Tracks

Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven’t the answer to a question you’ve been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full of people when someone is just about to speak, or, most beautiful of all, the moment after the door closes and you’re alone in the whole house? Each one is different, you know, and all very beautiful if you listen carefully.

The most damaging voice in your life is the one inside your head.

I don’t know what horrible things other people spit at you, but that sh*t is only effective if it finds a voice within you to hold hands with. We let people treat us the way we think we deserve.

If you’re talking down to yourself off, and worrying, and feeling guilty, then you’re filling your spirit with poison; you’re killing yourself slowly by doing so. Your thoughts become your life.

The voices inside your head have a strong impact on you, and sometimes you’re going to need to say “SHUT THE F*CK UP” and change the dialogue. Tell yourself you’re feeling awesome, and you’ll feel a bit more awesome. This isn’t placebo, this is real. Your emotions are based on your mindset, and often your mindsets are choices, choose happiness.

Decide what you want to focus on in your life, and decide the conversations inside your head. When good things are being said inside, the bullsh*t that may come from outside will have nothing to connect with.

Nin knew how much humans loved money, riches, and material things—though he never really could understand why. The more technologically advanced the human species got, the more isolated they seemed to become, at the same time. It was alarming, how humans could spend entire lifetimes engaged in all kinds of activities, without getting any closer to knowing who they really were, inside.
