“later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?

it answered
everywhere
everywhere
everywhere.”

The Symptoms of Hibernating / Anais Nin Quote

hibernation anais nin

anais
“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death.
Some never awaken. They are like the people who go to sleep in the snow and never awaken.”
– Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

Long Story Short

“Long story short… they forgot that they are all brothers and sisters, cohabiting the same planet, so they kinda became delusional and imagined these invisible borders, beliefs and structures separating them, and started destroying each other and the earth they live on… instead of just living, sharing, creating and evolving together.”

No. This is What’s Important

And every day the world will drag you by the hand...

and every day the world will drag you

“And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.” – Iain Thomas
