Be comforted in the fact that the ache in your heart and the confusion in your soul means that you are still alive, still human, and still open to the beauty of the world, even though you have done nothing to deserve it. And when you resent the ache in your heart, remember: You will be dead and buried soon enough.Paul Harding (via pvij)
Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it…It really is worth fighting for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk everything, you risk even more.my yoga instructor via Erica Jong.
Finally worked up the courage to challenge myself with yoga. Ever since my back surgery I’ve been scared of what I wouldn’t be able to do and it seems that ends up being not much. Proud of myself. (Taken with Instagram)
Infinity is the most intriguing subject for humans. Endless love is created from the wishful thinking of humans. Love is both finite and infinite. Love, hate, and even the whole universe can be described as infinite—everything will be absorbed in the trial and error of our desires. What excites me the most when I am writing poems and stories is the word “love.” Poetry, infinite love for the sun, imaginary worlds, and stars—these cosmic subjects can be transformed to the most beautiful things when they are crowned with love. I didn’t start to mention endless love in 1966; I have been talking about this since I was little. Love also contains the nihilistic meaning.Yayoi Kusama (Bullet Magazine, 2012).
I love you never felt like any blessing
Whispering like it’s a secret
Only to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart
