SOL: Toxicity

I sunk down into
rock bottom and you welcomed
me with warm embrace.

3AM Thoughts // AKA “Haiku 126.”

MIND: Sadist

People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.
Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.

// Thich Nhat Hanh

MIND: Deliberate

If you inherently long for something, become it first.
If you want gardens, become the gardener.
If you want love, embody love.
If you want mental stimulation, change the conversation.
If you want peace, exude calmness.
If you want to fill your world with artists, begin to paint.
If you want to be valued, respect your own time.
If you want to live ecstatically, find the ecstasy within yourself.
This is how to draw it in, day by day, inch by inch.
