"Does it feel the same,
the aching endless longing,
does it follow you?"
- Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson (via tylerknott)
"We’ve all had at least a taste of it: the falling away of everything. It can happen anywhere, at any time: during a walk through the park, or while listening to your favourite piece of music, or perhaps while looking into the eyes of a loved one. All past and future fall away, all ideas of a future attainment, a future happiness, a future ‘enlightenment’ simply dissolve into the vast open space which embraces everything. In that falling away, there is a simplicity, an intimacy, a freedom without a name. It’s totally beyond words, and yet it’s as obvious as breathing. It’s a glimpse into what you really are, beyond any story about what you are."
- Jeff Foster (via ashramof1)
"She’s like smoke: you think you’re seeing her clearly enough, but when you reach for her there’s nothing there."
- Ryū Murakami (via milkied)

"I am afraid of getting older… I am afraid of getting married. Spare me from cooking three meals a day—spare me from the relentless cage of routine and rote. I want to be free… I want, I want to think, to be omniscient… I think I would like to call myself ‘The girl who wanted to be God.’"
- Sylvia Plath, written in 1949 at age 17 (via vamoose)
