When I’m at a Rave and Someone Is Dancing Crazy…
They’re all like:
And I’m all like:
Well now, everything dies, baby, that’s a fact
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty
And meet me tonight in Atlantic City
Bruce Springsteen, “Atlantic City”
I will love this city forever and ever, until the end of time
No matter what comes up, we can learn new ways of being with it.

Want to be able to take pictures like this so bad

I believed that I wanted to be a poet, but deep down I just wanted to be a poem.
Although I went through a major personal transformation, this is not right for everyone, nor is it necessary. Take your life exactly as it is in this moment. It is a fallacy to think that you’re going to get closer to God by changing the form of your life, by leaving your partner or changing your job, or moving or whatever…. by giving up your material possessions or growing your hair, or cutting off your hair, or growing a beard….It is not the form, it is the nature of the being that fulfills the form. If you’re a lawyer you can continue being a lawyer. Just use being a lawyer as a way of coming to God. One form is not necessarily more spiritual than another. In working on the nature of your being, quieting the mind and opening the heart are essential to developing a spiritual consciousness.
Our whole spiritual transformation brings us to the point where we realize that in our own being, we are enough.
