We fucked each other up pretty well.  Nobody has burrowed so deep into my heart.  I’ve tried to forget you.  I’ve tried covering you up but as soon as I’ve let you go, you creep back into that little nook in the center of my heart and torture my sleep until i wake up aching for you.  I’m not really big on fate, and I don’t know why my mind always comes back to you, but i have this feeling that you understand exactly what I’m talking about.  I could see it behind your eyes.  It’s in the subtle shake in my voice.  Both of us waiting for something, but neither of us knowing exactly what.  Both of us hiding behind the stern faces we’ve taught each other to give the world. 
In truth, I miss you, but I’m starting to realize that the way i feel will never change, and that’s ok, with or without you, because love isn’t about possession.  I just want your heart to be free of walls again, whoever it may be safest with.  But I’m trading brick for straw in this house I’ve built around my heart, so if you come, it won’t be so tough. 

Tell you what, darling

Turn down the light
Turn down the bed
Go on, turn down these voices
They’re inside my head
Lay down with me
Go on, tell me no lies, no lies
Just hold me close
And don’t patronize me
Don’t patronize me

A one hundred year old woman reflects on her deceased husband.

"Take the love you have for me, and spread it around.
…There, beauty is found”

“I swear that even with the distance, slowly wearing at your name,
Your hands still catch the light the right way and
Our hearts still beat the same.”

Imagine if trees gave off wifi signals. We would be planting so many trees and we’d probably save the planet too.

Too bad they only produce the oxygen we breathe

The Amazing Connections Between the Inca and Egyptian Cultures 

"The ancient Egyptians (in Africa) and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas (in South America) evolved on opposite sides of the globe and were never in contact.

Yet, both cultures mysteriously possessed the same strikingly identical body of ancient art, architecture, symbolism, mythology and religion.

The Victorian era scholars, faced with this enigma, concluded that both cultures must have been children of the same Golden Age parent civilization, “Atlantis.”

Today, Egyptian/Inca parallels are not only being ignored by American and Western scholars, they’re being suppressed.

Many baffling and unsolved similarities link the ancient Egyptians and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas ― even though both cultures evolved on opposite sides of the planet, separated by oceans” Read More

"BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…used solar symbolism as a definitive part of their religion, which was identical. In Egypt the solar deity was Ra, in Peru the solar deity was Inti. In both cultures, you are the solar deity; the sun is a symbol of you, of your soul. You are a sol. You are an eternal divine sun. You have voluntarily Incarnated in matter, but now have amnesia of your true spiritual Self, you’ve lost your way home…
used the “animal on the forehead motif” to evoke the power of the Third Eye. Both cultures understood that we can create a trancelike state where we “awaken” our so-called “Mind’s Eye,” “Inner Eye,” or “Third Eye,” a symbol of spiritual illumination thought of as existing near the forehead above and between the two eyes―exactly where the animal is placed in the image above.”

But the plain truth is this: Love is not a matter of getting what you want. The insistence on always having what you want, on always being satisfied, on always being fulfilled, makes love impossible. To love, you have to climb out of the cradle, where everything is ‘getting,’ and grow up to the maturity of giving, without concern for getting anything special in return. Love is not a deal, it is a sacrifice. It is not marketing, it is a form of worship.
