"According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous."

Deepak Chopra 

During my 3 day drive something happened. A shift. The third since I’ve gotten sober. I am happier, I feel more love patience and tolerance. I am grateful and humbled. I am of use to others, and smile a hell of a lot more. I fall more and more in love with myself everyday, which helps me love those around me. My problem has never been that I have too much hate. My problem has always been that I love too much. This world, this culture, does not tolerate people like that. I have realized that I cannot love others if I do not love myself, I know that’s on a Hallmark card somewhere, but really how can I be certain of how I feel about someone else if I am not even sure of how I feel about myself? Life is very difficult right now, but it is also so damn sweet that my heart almost bursts open every day.

The Glitterati, Eylül Aslan

"All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told:
Many a man his life hath sold
But my outside to behold:
Gilded tombs do worms enfold.
Had you been as wise as bold,
Young in limbs, in judgement old
Your answer had not been inscroll’d
Fare you well, your suit is cold.” - The Merchant of Venice
