who wouldn’t want what we are crafting? a device to eliminate the middle man of emotion - and speak directly heart to pulsing heart. letters, linear lines, inadequate to convey on canvases, to patrons, whatever it was we felt that day.
What is your writing routine? How do you write -- what does production look like for you?
poems on my hands. poems jumping on my bed in the morning. poems inside my tea mug. they come when they choose, love. my production is …simply being attentive to them. sometimes it’s one word and i write that word down, until my being is ready to tell me what that word wants to do. sometimes it’s a line, or a complete poem that arrives. It took me a long time to respect my creativity for who it is, how it moves, and what it wants :)))
“I have no fear of losing you, for you aren’t an object of my property, or anyone else’s. I love you as you are, without attachment, without fears, without conditions, without egoism, trying not to absorb you. I love you freely because I love your freedom, as well as mine.”—Anthony de Mello (via lazyyogi)
“The Earth is so beautiful. We are beautiful also. We can allow ourselves to walk mindfully, touching the earth, our wonderful mother, with each step. We don’t need to wish our friends, ‘Peace be with you.’ Peace is already with them. We only need to help them cultivate the habit of touching peace in each moment.”—Thich Nhat Hanh (via cosmofilius)
“when you meet that person. a person. one of your soulmates. let the connection. relationship be what it is. it may be five mins. five hours. five days. five months. five years. a lifetime. let it manifest itself, the way it is meant to. it has an organic destiny. this way if it stays or if it leaves, you will be softer from having been loved this authentically. souls come into, return, open, and sweep through your life for a myriad of reasons, let them be who and what they are meant.”—nayyirah waheed (via nayyirahwaheed)
