Crave for a thing, you will get it. Renounce the craving, the object will follow you by itself.

Let go. Leap, they say, and the net will appear. That beautiful garden of a mind is growing full of weeds. The time is ripe to rip them out, call them by name and fill their catacombs with fresh soil. To jump deliberately with eyes wide open might be the noblest, most educated decision one could make in their lives. But words are just words [are just words, are just words] until they become energy catalyzed by thought, pushed through fear, out through muscle and onto a path.

It’s not that I’ve been dishonest, it’s just that I loathe reality.

Superwoman. Against odds that should bring any average Jane to her knees, she finds the willpower to put on a perfect face every morning at 5:00 a.m. and wage daily wars. These efforts are hardly worth commending. The truth is, she practices quite well the art of diligent insanity.
Every day is an opportunity to fix that painting.
Some days when she feels her actions warrant defense, she’ll say that she wants to be a hero.
But every day she presses “play” and then “repeat”. She hopes that one morning, she’ll wake up and look in the mirror and all the little patches, adjustments and efforts will finally have done the trick. All the gaps and ugly holes will have been filled in. Refined. Corrected.
She will have done her world right.
That’s the day for which superwoman goes to bed and wakes.
The truth of the lie is that superwoman needs a reality check. She needs an intervention.
Rest.
