One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.
But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you're fighting for.
I still pray but it's something automatic, and I'm not even sure I still believe in it... Because I've suffered, and G-d didn't listen to my prayers. because many times in my life I have tried to love with all my heart, and my love has wound up being trampled or betrayed. If G-d is love, he should have cared more about my feelings.
Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.
Every blessing ignored becomes a curse
He seemed to be talking about my fears, my insecurity, and my unwillingness to see what was wonderful because tomorrow it might disappear and I might suffer. The gods throw the dice, and they don't ask whether we want to be in the game or not. They don't care if when you go, you leave behind a lover, a home, a career, or a dream. The gods don't care whether you have it all, whether it seems that your every desire can be met through hard work and persistence. The gods don't want to know about your plans and your hopes. Somewhere they're throwing the dice- and you are chosen. From then on, winning or losing is only a question of luck. The gods throw the dice, freeing love from its cage. And love can create or destroy-depending on the direction of the wind when it is set free.
I think that when we look for love courageously, it reveals itself, and we wind up attracting even more love. If one person really wants us, everyone does. But if we're alone, we become even more alone. Life is strange.
If you start by promising what you don't even have yet, you'll lose your desire to work towards, getting it.
Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere.
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream.
