“When we stop distracting ourselves, and courageously dive into the heart of any feeling, positive or negative, right or wrong, we rediscover the vast ocean of who we are. Every feeling is made of unspeakable intelligence.” -Jeff Foster
Everything in future will improve if you are making a spiritual effort now.

To see and feel one’s beloved naked for the first time is one of life’s pure, irreducible epiphanies. If there is a true religion in the universe, it must include that truth of contact or be forever hollow. To make love to the one true person who deserves that love is one of the few absolute rewards of being a human being, balancing all of the pain, loss, awkwardness, loneliness, idiocy, compromise, and clumsiness that go with the human condition. To make love to the right person makes up for a lot of mistakes.

hmm. Being honest with yourself and other people. Allowing yourself to feel and just feel, not judge it. Being what you are, in the most human sense. We build everything up all of the time. We complicate things and nothing is actually complicated, it is all very simple. No more bullshit, no more lies, no more hiding confusion, no more fuckin with people. Just being what you are and seeing things as they are. Just saying what you mean, doing what you know is right in your spirit… That’s what I think being raw is. And I don’t know how someone achieves it. I was fucked up and I looked at myself a lot and sorted through the rot and made myself aware of who I was trying to be, who I was, and who I didn’t want to be. I went through my bullshit and am still going through my bullshit but I’m trying to be this honest person who sees things simply and tries not to overreact or be overly sensitive or swoon over people who are not right for me. So I don’t know. Is this even something a person achieves? Or is this something a person learns their entire life? I don’t know what this means to anybody else and I don’t want my personal definition (which is too hard for me to actually define the right way) to be pushed on someone else so they try to become a certain way. This is my cleansing. This is my way. You have your own and you will find your way to rawness.
That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air … Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.

You’re drunk, and I’m drunk, and I’m just exactly drunk enough to tell you anything you want to know. That’s the kind of girl I am. If I like a person, I’ll tell them anything they want to know. Just ask me. Go ahead, ask me.
