“It never ceases to amaze me the precious time we spend chasing squirrels around our brains, playing out our dramas, worrying about unwanted facial hair, seeking adoration, justifying our actions, complaining about slow internet connections, dissecting the lives of idiots, when we are sitting in the middle of a full-blown miracle that is happening right here, right now. We’re on a planet that somehow knows how to rotate on its axis and follow a defined path while it hurtles through space! Our hearts beat! We can see! We have love, laughter, language, living rooms, computers, compassion, cars, fire, fingernails, flowers, music, medicine, mountains, muffins! We live in a limitless Universe overflowing with miracles! The fact we aren’t stumbling around in an inconsolable state of sobbing awe is appalling. The Universe muse be like, what more do I have to do to wake these bitches up? Make water, their most precious resource, rain down from the sky?”
“Self perception is a zoo. We spend our lives drifting between glimpses of our own, infinite glory and the fear that not only are we totally incapable/unworthy/lazy/horrible, but that it’s only a matter of time before someone blows the whistle on us. We torture ourselves incessantly, and for what purpose? If we can glimpse the glory (and I know you can), why do we waste our precious time giving any energy to the other opinions? Wouldn’t life be so much more fun, productive, and sexy if we fully embraced our magnificently delightful selves?”
“Imagine what the world would be like if everyone loved themselves so much that they weren’t threatened by other people’s opinions, skin color or sexual preferences or talents or education or possessions or lack of possessions or religious beliefs or customs or their general tendency to just be whoever the hell they are.”
“Comparison is the fastest way to take all the fun out of life. It’s none of your business what other people are doing. All that matters is that you’re enjoying yourself and pleased with what you’re creating. It’s precisely your uniqueness that makes you awesome--deciding that someone else’s uniqueness is better than your own isn’t exactly being your best buddy about things...You are more than enough. Avoid comparison like the plague.”
“You aren't a better person for feeling guilty or bad about yourself, just a sadder one. Get clear on this one truth: guilt, shame and self-criticism are some of the most destructive forces in your life, which is why forgiving yourself is one of the most powerful.”

We are love.
We are one.
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.

We are war.
We are how we treat each other and nothing more.
