WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE

Soothing.

The ego says, ‘I shouldn’t have to suffer,’ and that thought makes you suffer so much more. It is a distortion of the truth, which is always paradoxical. The truth is that you need to say yes to suffering before you can transcend it.
Eckhart Tolle  (via novemberisms)
You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.

Thich Nhat Hanh  (via footprints-on-the-web)

I wish everyone actually practised this.

There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.
Sir Francis Bacon
I live in company with a body, a silent companion, exacting and eternal.
Eugene Delacroix

Randall Rosenthal born 1947 in NY has become famous creating what appears to be a cardboard box stuffed to the brim with wads of cash. In reality, both the box and the cash are carved out of wood and hand painted to jaw-dropping, lifelike precision by the artist. Though Rosenthal’s portfolio of work also includes wood recreated as newspapers, baseball cards, binders, books and more, it is his sculptures of money that have particularly captured the public’s eye.

"Half the time is spent on carving and half is spent on painting, they’re the exact opposite processes. I start with a block of wood and it’s totally reductive in that I take away wood until I get what I want.

The carving is a high-wire act because there’s no room for error and I don’t plan it out, the painting is the opposite. You can paint on the paint forever, until you get what you like.” (by )

"I don’t have any good ideas"

That’s a common mantra among those that say that they want to leap, but haven’t, and aren’t, and won’t.

What they’re actually saying is, “I don’t have any ideas that are guaranteed to work, and not only that, are guaranteed to cause no criticism or moments when I’m sure the whole thing is going to fall apart.”

Seth Godin, wise as ever, tells it like it is.

To solve this paradox, he wrote a wonderful children’s book for grownups about vulnerability and the creative life

So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide
