The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, 
the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves,
is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and
the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.

We think sometimes we're only drawn to the good,
but we're actually drawn to the authentic.
We like people who are real more than those who
hide their true selves under layers of artificial niceties.

It is what you think about.

And when the event, the big change in your life, 
is simply an insight --- isn't that a strange thing?
Isn't it amazing that a completely invisible 
thing in your head can feel realer than
anything you've experienced before?

Weekend Zen, October 1-2

Your sadness, your fear, your loneliness, even your despair
is so fragile, friend. It can break open at any moment. 
A single note in a piece of music can do it. A kind glance
from a stranger. The feeling of the spring breeze 
on your face. A reflection of a bird in flight. 

In any moment, your sorrow can shatter
 into nothingness; it has no more reality than that, 
no more substance than a shadow.

~ Jeff Foster
