instead of asking:
how can i be more like them?
how can i be more like me?
how many versions of me do i occupy? where do they live? how do they grow? what will they bloom into? what rituals do they practice? how do they show care to others? what are they afraid of? what do they dream about at night?
“[I]t may be wiser to try to create the place you want to live, rather than to keep trying to find it.”
"Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
