“ When you reach for the stars, you are reaching for the farthest thing out there. When you reach deep into yourself, it is the same thing, but in the opposite direction. If you reach in both directions, you will have spanned the universe.
— Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration (via wordsnquotes)

“ The biggest misconception in life is the belief that the world is a separate object, whereas in truth, the world is the expression of the Subject, which is what we are.
Thus the saying, ‘I don’t see the world as it is, I see the world as I am,’ is true.

“ Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened every day and arms that were never for anyone else. But just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breath in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes.

My thoughts exactly about turning 23.
“ Everything is funnier in retrospect, funnier and prettier and cooler. You can laugh at anything from far enough away.
— Chuck Palahniuk, Stranger Than Fiction (via observando)
