Remember this always

Each morning, the moment you take your head off the pillow, you have all you need. – unknown

What I’ve learned to be true.

Apathy and emotional overreaction are different sides of the same coin. Just like laughter and tears are both expressions of a release happening in the body, apathy and emotional overreaction are both expressions of the same egotistic tendency of the mind to be in control.

Run away from the past, and you’ll become disconnected. Run towards the future, and you’ll become too emotional. The only way to free ourselves is to let go, observe, and stop running away and towards experiences which never really happened, and never really will. The only true experience that we will ever have is happening right now. Now it’s gone. Wait, now it’s here again. Can you feel it?

Forget it.

What if the things you remember aren’t real?

When you feel the sunset kissing the outline of your face you’re not remembering: you’re experiencing, feeling the warmth awakening your heart. Any thought hoping for or remembering this moment isn’t real. It’s only your imagination, your contaminated interpretation of now. Think about this – but only for a brief second – because as soon as you do, the moment is gone. Reality is right here: in the place where there are no thoughts, no words, no hopes, no knowledge of what happened to you or predictions of what will. You are everything right now. The most important person in your life. Know that. Feel that. Now forget that.

Wait a minute

When you doubt yourself. When you question if you’re good enough. When you wonder if the things you were born to do were just frivolous dreams. When you ask yourself if you are as special as you used to think… don’t answer. There is still no right reply. But one day, sooner than later, you will have the answer for all those questions – the right one. And you’ll know that because you held your answer until the day you succeeded.

Take my word and pass it on.

I don’t write to be part of history, I write to make it happen.

We copy stuff to keep it alive. It’s an ode to genius, a way to pass on a truth that would otherwise be forgotten. A timeless idea is worth seeing now and 100 years from now. Forgetting it would be a waste. To keep the genious alive and afraid to ruin it, people plagiarise. Sometimes those people are richer than you, and sometimes they’re just alive and you’re not. Whoever they are, those people are just messengers, keeping your ideas alive for future generations. So go for it. Copy me. Quote me. Plagiarise me. Let my words live forever through your desire to be famous.
