Home

The cozy homeliness of home where all things work and all is of your own, where you are out of strife and quarrel and still free at large to do whatever, even working late at nights and without limits, is in all the world the best that you shall ever have, more worth than gold and all the worldly riches, where you cultivate your own and have your creativity and can bring out all your ...

Metaphysical

Do not fear the terror of the darkness of your mind, which only is the abyss of your soul, unfathomable, bottomless and infinite, which is your only contact with eternity, the basis of your whole existence and the very essence of your life, the source of all its energy and meaning. That horrific darkness is no joke and nothing to escape from or evade, but actually the source of all your potency for love, creation ...

Consummation

The passion of my love keeps burning but without consuming neither mine own energy nor thy exceeding beauty, which keeps constantly improving, like the incorruptibility of the perpetual expansion of our love, which, although so exhausting, miraculously keeps on growing in vitality and energy and force, like as if physical confinement, like invalidation, limitation and imprisonment served only to the more enforce the energy, renew it, boost it and enlarge it for the cultivation, practice ...

Never look back

Some truisms You learn from your experience, but what you learn should only serve your future. Therefore, to look back and linger there will only hold you back and slow you down. There is no greater harm, for instance, to a work of art than overworking it, to go on working on it when it's finished, which will just detract from its completeness. Memories of old are good to dwell on, but they never can ...

My best friend

I always lived with him and he was always close to me, more close than any man and any friend as I could never willingly get rid of him; and as he always stayed in close relationship I found that he was actually my best friend although only something of an abstract dream, a phantom and abstraction, an idea of darkness always faithfully reminding me of facts of life, my destination and my fate to ...

You never can be disconnected from reality as long as you remain alive, which you will even do as dead, but you will not be certain of it until you are dead. How is it to be half alive and half stuck on the other side? Of course, your life is part a dreamworld as you walk half sleeping among ghosts, but that will only sharpen your awareness by its insight into more than three ...

Age

The more maturity advances, the less matters age, and years grow insignificant as timelessness takes over and your youth becomes perpetual in mind as childish sensitivity grows more acute and you feel as if you had been alive forever and can't stop living for that reason constantly renewing all your love as those you love increase in number with your social life's perpetual expansion. What has age to do with that? Nothing at all. So ...

Demonic love

They say you can’t be lovers being stuck together in the clinch of a relationship and at the same time be good friends, that friendship starts as obligations end and sexual struggle is disposed of. I disbelieve it. Friendship makes the sexual relationship endure, while it can not endure without friendship. That’s the basis on which all relationships are built, and they should all be lasting whether sexual or not. Let tempests hammer down your ...
