If I died tomorrow, no matter how many people would be affected by my death, during my last moments of life when all we truly have is our mind I would be happy knowing everything happened as it needed to. Innumerous mistakes and people I have hurt, but at the end of the day self-reflection and subjectivity has allowed me to finally get to a point where I can affect more lives positively rather than negatively. This realization has allowed me an ethereal happiness and existence, here and now. That alone in my eyes is individuality and dare I say the secret to life.

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

It’s all a matter of being present here and now and in every moment. Life is all about the moments and how receptive you are to them. I know what I want in the future but my spaceship is right here, right now and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I am one with the moment, one with the openness and one with the beauty of life. ~me

Its the colors you wear.

There is a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.

There is nothing in all the world more beautiful or significant of the laws of the universe than the nude human body.
