I close my eyes to tell myself nobody’s looking, I play deaf and now, nobody’s talking. My legs hurt, been running for long; my eyes bleed when I dream of where I belonged. The lips are sealed, no truth is revealed for we believe in a lie; faces concealed. The stories I’ve known, the weakness I’ve shown, smile back at me and I turn into a stone.

    My dear angel… can you turn me into stone please? So that I don’t feel either.

  10. Life can be painful and disappointing, but I try to drink the nectar of peace, love and joy at every chance I get (which can potentially be each breath). Sometimes the pain and the disappointment cannot be avoided. The tantric path says to live each moment as it is, but what if there is too much pain and emptiness in each moment?

    1. That’s what I ask myself. What if there’s too much pain and emptiness? What then? Then they ask me to look at bright side. It’s just a flicker. What do you say?

      1. I say find the peace and the joy within yourself. Connect with the infinite. It’s not only the mental attitude that counts. The mental attitude is nothing without the fulfillment that comes from within. If you truly want it and ask for it, it will come to you.

              And no, it doesn’t feel a thing, it experiences a change.
