“Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those, who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, the melancholia, the panic fear, which is inherent in a human condition.”—Graham Greene (via quotestuff)
“I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and I still am, but I no longer seek in the stars or in books; I’m beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves.”—
“It’s beautiful when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you’ve built up around your mind and let them inside.”—(via emotionaltrickery)
“An idiot will do anything, no matter how stupid, because he is afraid of what everybody will think of him if he does nothing. A genius, on the other hand, is content to do nothing, no matter what people think, if he can’t find anything worth doing.”—Tom Upton (via myquotelibrary)
So, if you guys are wondering why I don’t post anything, I DO! But unfortunately it’s at like 3-4 in the morning, so, if you wanna see what I do with my spare time, you can go to my blog and read about what inspires me when I’m exhausted (which is a hard thing to do).

Was that we worshipped the same God. These words were spoken to me from an Alaskan Native American. He told me the stories of how, when the white man came to evangelize to the natives, they told the natives to cut their hair. They burnt their totem poles. They told them stories of the wrath of God and of Hell. They tried to get them to convert on the basis of fear. After telling all of these terrible things, this man looked at me and said, “It was a terrible thing for these men to do, but the thing that hurt me the most was that they didn’t know we woshipped the same God. They called him God, I called it the Great Spirit. The thing that lives in everyone, the thing that created the trees and links us all to one another.” It was then that I realized that no longer can I say, in the words of Mumford and Sons, “your truth is better than mine”. I believe in God and Jesus, but I refuse to believe everything I am fed from the religious establishment. I have created my own faith, one that I have arrived at because of my lifes circumstances and who I choose to be. And one facet of my faith is that, if you believe in the divine, if you believe in the Great Spirit, than you know the God I know, you may just call it something different. I refuse to believe the man who doesn’t know we “worshipped the same God”.
