With maddening hunger
I’d write to the point of suffocation
I’d write myself into nervous breakdowns
Manuscripts spiralling out like tentacles into abysmal nothing
And I’d write about you
a lot more
than I should”
of understanding loss, grace of the word ‘no’
and also being able to say ‘you are not kind’
the year of humanity/humility
when the whole world couldn’t get out of bed
everyone i’ve met this year says the same thing
‘you are so easy to be around, how do you do that?’
the year i broke open and dug out all the rot with own hands
the year i learnt small talk
and how to smile at strangers
the year i understood that i am my best when i reach out and ask ‘do you want to be my friend?’
the year of sugar, everywhere
softness. sweetness. honey honey.
the year of being alone
and learning how much i like it
the year of hugging people i don’t know because i want to know them
the year i made peace and love
Don’t ever expect anyone else to make you happy. Seek joy that comes from within. Learn to control your thoughts and eradicate negative thinking. Your mind is like a garden. It is much easier for weeds to grow. Nurture your mind. Water your mind with positivity. Seek to overcome fear. Do not be afraid of who you are & the power you possess. You cannot expect greatness from others until you expect greatness from yourself. You must be able to give the things that you seek in return. You must be able to deliver. You must be able to be objective. Pride & ego are your enemies. Do not let your emotions dominate you. Welcome them. Feel them. Embrace them. It is not what you feel that is wrong. Your feelings are valid. What will set you a part is how you act or react to things. Do not be moved by the small things. Apologize if you’re wrong. Invest in your own joy. Speak your own truth Keep loving. Love has the power to heal. Those who love you will rise to meet you where you are.

A mature person does not fall in love, he or she rises in love. Only immature people fall; they stumble and fall down in love. Somehow they were managing and standing. Now they cannot manage and they cannot stand. They were always ready to fall on the ground and to creep. They don’t have the backbone, the spine; they don’t have the integrity to stand alone.
A mature person has the integrity to stand alone. And when a mature person gives love, he or she gives without any strings attached to it. When two mature persons are in love, one of the great paradoxes of life happens, one of the most beautiful phenomena: they are together and yet tremendously alone. They are together so much that they are almost one. Two mature persons in love help each other to become more free. There is no politics involved, no diplomacy, no effort to dominate. Only freedom and love.”
Osho & I are totally on the same page about love.
