We search for happiness everywhere, but our treasure is within us already. To claim it, you must abandon the desires of the ego and enter into the silence of heart and mind. Learn to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That's the only thing you should be trying to control.
The first and the foremost thing to remember is that we are all enlightened beings on a human journey and not the other way round. Through reincarnation and maintaining an open mind, our souls can also evolve and grow with no limit. It is a long journey, but that’s okay because souls are eternal.
We have to look after each other. We have to make sure we all get to wherever we are going, together. It’s so incredibly easy to forget to be human, and we do it all the time. We hurt other people. We betray other people. We ignore other people. And that’s no way to live. You have to reach out and touch the rest of the world. The other people. The other isolated souls. And you can do this online, you don’t even have to leave the fucking house. Find someone. Walk them home.
A fuschia pink iPod is my constant companion. It is one of the few things I never leave home without. And it would not be entirely perfidious to admit that my iTunes library is one of my most treasured possessions.
