and everything that is good in the universe

The Beginning of Growing Up

‘Learning how to be kind to ourselves is important. When we look into our own hearts and begin to discover what is confused and what is brilliant, what is bitter and what is sweet, it isn’t just ourselves that we’re discovering. We’re discovering the universe. When we discover the buddha that we are, we realize that everything and everyone is buddha. We discover that everything and everyone is awake. Everything and everyone is precious and whole and good. When we regard thoughts and emotions with humor and openness, that’s how we perceive the universe.

This opening to the world begins to benefit ourselves and others simultaneously. The more we relate with others, the more quickly we discover where we’re blocked. Seeing this is helpful, but it’s also painful. Sometimes we use it as ammunition against ourselves: we aren’t kind, we aren’t honest, we aren’t brave, and we might as well give up right now. But when we apply the instruction to be soft and nonjudgmental to whatever we see at this very moment, the embarrassing reflection in the mirror becomes our friend. We soften further and lighten up more, because we know it’s the only way we can continue to work with others and be of any benefit in the world. This is the beginning of growing up.’

I want to give my deepest apologies and i hope this is not going to affect us in the future, @gemcrust i’m sorry too for making this trouble, I know it’s my fault and i thought it was a good idea to redeem my bad act.
I hope you won’t have hard feelings about it, and everything can solve, i think this is the most decent decision to do in a case like this. Thanks for your attention.

Okay listen ;;; I saw you AU fic appearing so many times I decided to check it out and WTF ?! Seriously ?? I was supposed to WORK TODAY AND I READ EVERYTHING IN ONE GO ?? I skipped most of the NSFW parts but I just LOVE the rest (the talkings, the descriptions, the emotions) just WHO gave you the permission to be so good ?? I want to speak to the Universe's manager this instant !

hfsjdhfkajsfhskj omg this makes me so so happy ???? i can’t believe this omg i’m so glad you liked it!!!

People hating on the new SU episode and I’m sitting here like
I thought it was aight? I mean yea it’s not SUPER FUCKING PLOT HEAVY but it’s still a good episode about realizing when you’re hurting people and how to be an ally??? That’s a really good lesson that some of you assholes should learn, and it’s put in a very simple way that actually fits Ronaldo’s character and demonstrates Stevens growth as a character (bc do you think he’d be able to tell Ronaldo “wtf dude” on episode one? I feel like he’d be too nice at that point)
and I lowkey feel like all these people complaining are being whiny babies bc we’re getting an episode that doesn’t absolutely wreck our Shit??? Bc CN used a creative tactic to advertise this kind of episode and it was p funny that Bloodstone was his gemsona all along????

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
