I was trying to read at the school library only to find that Panic At the Disco was loudly warming up in the outdoor theater next to the library. So I decided to come home and read, have a glass of gatorade, and watch the planes take off in the distance. It’s nights like these that make me think I chose the right decisions that got me to where I am today.

heart sutra and personal identity?

Am I the only student in philosophy who thinks that the Heart Sutra should be taught in philosophy courses about Personal Identity? I need to make this my thesis. lol ideas. ideas. so many ideas and so little time.  I’m screwed. 

I meditate because evolution gave me a big brain, but it didn’t come with an instruction manual. I meditate because life is too short and sitting slows it down. I meditate because life is too long and I need an occasional break…I meditate because it’s such a relief to spend time ignoring myself…I meditate because I’m building myself a bigger and better perspective, and occasionally I need to add a new window.

 Wes Nisker - "Crazy Wisdom Saves the World Again" (via laughing-treees)

(via stillirise14)

What is a poet? An unhappy man who hides deep anguish in his heart, but whose lips are so formed that when the sigh and cry pass through them, it sounds like lovely music. And people flock around the poet and say: ‘Sing again soon’ - that is, ‘May new sufferings torment your soul but your lips be fashioned as before, for the cry would only frighten us, but the music, that is blissful.
