When you are destroying something, you are also destroying yourself, remember. And when you are creating something— a song, a dance— you are also creating yourself. You are discovering new dimensions of your being.
Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.
― Eckhart Tolle (via emotional-algebra)
I want to be craved by you. I want you to think about kissing me as much as I think about kissing you.
