At the end if time I will still be thinking about how your smile was the only light that managed to penetrante through layers of icy scars
My eternal light I will never again see
Your eternal light that lives in me
"I was always attracted not by some quantifiable, external beauty, but by something deep down, something absolute. Just as some people have a secret love for rainstorms, earthquakes, or blackouts, I liked that certain undefinable something."-
Everything you love is here
Playing music requires fine motor skills, which are controlled in both hemispheres of the brain. It also combines the linguistic and mathematical precision (which the left hemisphere is more involved in) with the novel and creative content (that the right hemisphere excels in). For these reasons, playing music has been found to increase the volume and activity in the brain’s corpus callosum - the bridge between the two hemispheres - allowing messages to get across the brain faster and through more diverse routes.

"Across planes of consciousness, we have to live with the paradox that opposite things can be simultaneously true."- Ram Dass
Have you ever considered that perhaps the time you thought the forces of the universe intervened in your path and prevented you from doing something, maybe it was a test to see how far you would be willing to fight for it?
You missed your train and could not meet up with the person you still had longing feelings for, you got a flat tire and could not make it to a date…
Perhaps it was all a test because nothing worth having comes easy, because diamonds are only found after you put in so much effort and dig to the warm heart of the Earth.
Next time you think fate intervenes and you shrug, put your empty hands in you pockets and turn to go home,
Maybe “If it’s meant to be, it will be” is just tricking yourself in finding empty comfort, but that’s all it is,

The times I thought I felt lost I came to realize I had strayed from the path for a reason.
Off the beaten path, there’s times you’d rather not be found and tread on with silence filling the air.
"When I give, it does not come with strings. I’m not keeping track of what you owe me. When I give, I choose to do so without ulterior motives. I give because I know what it’s like to be without. To long for and be ignored; to speak and not be heard; to care for and have nothing returned. When I give it’s because I know the value in what I have in my heart. And I refuse to let the world stop me from sharing that, But when things start being taken for granted, When you no longer appreciate my sincerity, I won’t switch, I won’t get angry, and I won’t be spiteful. I’ll just get smart, and change your role in my life. Because when I give, I’m all in. But when I’m done, there’s no turning back."- Rob Hill (via have-perspective)
