It's not about looking for what's missing, it's about seeing what is already there. Change the story you are telling yourself.
Tornado, The Black Crowes
Sit down by the window and watch the tornado
Wait for the sheriff to bring some dirty water by
Help yourself out to some of my disaster
Its movin' faster
Than the last time I was on speed
Don't you know what I mean
Cause it's ways and means and your ways are mean
I could fill this page up with this boys ambition
But I don't audition
Oh yes that's true
I could never act for you
Heard you saw some friends of mine last winter
Then again, I heard you disappeared into ether
I don't laugh and you smile because I'm tired
I'm feelin wired oh so weary
And oh so old
Am I being too bold
Bold enough to ask you if you really love me
In my shadows and in my dreams
And just one last thing
Please let me say
And that is please,
Oh please, please stay away, from me
Never underestimate your ability to choose your fate.
"The personal, or conscious, has the power of will and choice, and can therefore exercise discrimination in the selection of methods whereby to bring about the solution of difficulties." ~ Charles Haanel
"We do each other dreadful harm because we refuse to justify the foibles of others - only our own. And so that is where I come in. Because I am able to see, articulate and justify the lies of others.
Don't go away with the wrong impression, Mister Pilgrim. I do not mean there is no longer deciet in me - only that I no longer lie to myself. I no longer justify; I merely record."
"Death is always provocative and the young require so many answers which none of us can provide."
~ Pilgrim, Timothy Findley
"Context is what gives meaning, and a serious search of context is an ever expanding process leading inevitably to the greatest context of all: the whole cosmos."
- Elisabet Sahtouris
"No metaphor should be mistaken for reality, and perhaps a variety of metaphors is insurance against the temptation to do so."
