He buried his face in her hair. She felt his lips move against her ear when he said, “I never want to see you like this again.”

“Do you mean the dress or the cell?

A laugh shook him. “Definitely the cell.” Then he cupped her face in his hands. “Jer molle pe oonet. Enel mörd je nej afva trohem verretn.”

Nina swallowed hard. She remembered those words and what they truly meant. (…) It was the vow of the drüskelle to Fjerda. And now it was Matthias’ promise to her.

You balanced the pan of brownies on your left hand as you opened the front door of Rich and Jaci’s home with your right. They were hosting a get-together with friends and you were happy to come and enjoy a day out even if the morning hadn’t started well for you. Since you had returned from your trips, your sleep schedule was off and this morning you did not wake up when your alarm had gone off. This delayed in getting ready for the party and making the brownies that Jaci asked you to make. You were a little frazzled but you were really looking forward to the day and spending it with everyone. 

You would have never made it to the party on time if you hadn’t been staying with Rob. Being gone for almost three weeks in different countries and time zones had really messed you up. Traveling had been fun but it was nice not to worry about being somewhere at a certain time. Between the conventions in Europe, with your personal traveling, and then going to Australia, you were just happy to sleep in the same bed more than a couple nights in a row. Even if that bed happened to be at Rob’s house still and not your own apartment. You were slightly disappointed that you were set to be moving in a few days now that you were back in town.

VIVEKANANDA’S 15 LAWS OF LIFE

1. Love Is The Law Of Life: All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore, love for love’s
 sake, because it is law of life, just as you breathe to live.

2. It’s Your Outlook That Matters: It is our own mental attitude, which makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light.

3. Life is Beautiful: First, believe in this world - that there is meaning behind everything. Everything in the world is good, is holy and beautiful. If you see something evil, think that you do not understand it in the right light. Throw the burden on yourselves!

4. It’s the Way You Feel: Feel like Christ and you will be a Christ; feel like Buddha and you will be a Buddha. It is feeling that is the life, the strength, the vitality, without which no amount of intellectual activity can reach God.

5. Set Yourself Free: The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him - that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.

6. Don’t Play the Blame Game: Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.

7. Help Others: If money helps a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better.

8. Uphold Your Ideals: Our duty is to encourage everyone in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.

9. Listen ro Your Soul: You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.

10. Be Yourself: The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves!

11. Nothing Is Impossible: Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin - to say that you are weak, or others are weak.

12. You Have the Power: All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.

13. Learn Everyday: The goal of mankind is knowledge… now this knowledge is inherent in man. No knowledge comes from outside: it is all inside. What we say a man ‘knows’, should, in strict psychological language, be what he 'discovers’ or 'unveils’; what man 'learns’ is really what he discovers by taking the cover off his own soul, which is a mine of infinite knowledge.

14. Be Truthful: Everything can be sacrificed for truth, but truth cannot be sacrificed for anything.

15. Think Different: All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.

Give me a chance // Jack Johnson

Finally a Jack J imagine I’m so excited!! I hope you guys like it❤️ and don’t forget to leave requests. Btw I think everyone is beautiful in their own way, so in the request when you said “the ugly one of the school” I’m just making it that she thinks she’s ugly type thing.

My whole life, I’ve never been pretty. I’ve never been the girl that boys chase after, or the girl everyone secretly wanted to be. It’s always been that way, and it was something I was okay with. I just stuck to my few friends, and my hobbies, and I was okay. Everyday at school, I just went in and got through it. I never saw the point in the popularity contests and the attention seeking. I preferred to stand in the shadows, without being noticed.
I stood at my locker and got my stuff ready as I began walking down the busy halls to my class.

Jack’s pov

As I walked to class with Jack, we began talking and laughing loudly. He pulled me into a headlock and then shoved my forward, causing me to hit someone. She dropped everything and sighed loudly. She turned around and I saw it was Y/N.
“I’m sorry,” I said.
“It’s okay,” she said, not looking into my eyes as she bent down and picked up her books. I went to help her but she just stared at me.
“I’m a big girl, I can do it,” she smiled. For some reason, I’ve never noticed until now how pretty her smile was. Everyone always sort of talked about how she was a nobody and wasn’t very pretty, but honestly, now that I’m really looking at her, she’s really cute.
“Well I’ll at least walk to class with you,” I said, since we had the same class.
“Okay,” she giggled as she covered her mouth with her hand. Jack stared at me and I shrugged as I walked with her. We got into class and she walked away, waving slightly as she took her spot at her desk. I couldn’t stop staring at her.

Y/N’s pov

Did Jack Johnson seriously just walk with me to class? Holy crap. Jack and Jack were some of the most popular people in school and I always knew they made fun of me, he was probably just doing it as a joke, or because he felt bad for me. I’ve always sort of had something for Johnson. Gilinsky was the one all the girls swooned over, but there was something about Johnson that just made my heart flutter.
At the end of the day I stood at my locker when I saw someone walking towards me. I turned and saw it was Jack. Assuming he would just walk passed me, I continued getting my stuff ready to go home. But, he didn’t walk passed me, he stopped.
“Hey Y/N,” he said.
“Hi Jack,” I said, not really sure why he was talking to me.
“I was wondering if maybe you wanna come over? We can watch a movie or something,” he said.
“If this is some stupid bet or prank, please don’t waste your time, or mine for that matter,” I said.
“No, I swear it’s not that. I just wanna get to know you,” he said.
“Please, no one ever wants to get to know me,” I laughed sarcastically.
“Well I do, please give me a chance?” he asked. I sighed.
“Fine,” I said and a smile spread across his face. He was honestly the cutest thing.
When we got to his house I awkwardly stepped in, not knowing what to do.
“I’ll take your bag,” he smiled.
“It’s okay,” I said.
“You like doing things yourself, don’t you?” he asked.
“Yeah,” I laughed.
“Well follow me,” he said as he walked downstairs into a room with a tv and a bunch of couches. I set my stuff down and took a spot on the couch next to him.
“Relax, I won’t bite,” he said.
“I know I just, I don’t know,” I sighed, not knowing what to say.
“Why did you invite me here?” I asked.
“I talked to you in the hall today and something just caught my attention. The way you’re just so independent and do your own thing. I feel like no one really gives you a chance and I want to,” he said.
“Wow, that’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me,” I said.
“I don’t believe it,” he said.
“It’s true,” I laughed.
“Well that’s gonna change,” he smiled. I blushed as I turned away from him.

***
I walked into school and felt tons of eyes on me.
“She was the one hanging with Johnson yesterday,” one girl said.
“Why would Johnson ever hang out with her? She’s not even pretty and she’s a loser,” another girl whispered. I tried to block it out as I walked to my locker. Jack walked over to me.
“I can’t do this,” I blurted out.
“What?” he asked.
“Everyone’s just confused because you’re hanging out with the ugly girl. I’m treated like a joke and I don’t want all this attention because you pity me,” I said.
“I don’t pity you. And you’re not ugly, you’re actually beautiful,” he said.
“That’s kind of hard to believe when I’ve been told the opposite my entire life,” I scoffed.
“Look, Y/N, I really really like you. I don’t care what other people think. You’re so down to earth and awesome and I like how real you are. Please don’t push me away,” he pleaded.
“Okay,” I whispered.
“Really?” he asked.
“Yeah,” I nodded.
“Thank you, I’ll talk to you later okay?” he asked.
“Of course,” I said. He pulled me into his arms and butterflies erupted from my stomach. Jack Johnson just told me he liked me.

*a few months later*

I walked the halls, Jack’s hand in mine after last period. We left the school and went to a park, where we sat on the swings next to each other. We’ve been dating for months now, and it’s still so surreal to me. Never in a million years did I think I would get a boyfriend in high school, let alone Jack Johnson.
“Y/N, I need to tell you something,” he said. Oh god, was he breaking up with me? I held my breath as I looked at him, waiting for him to continue.
“Uhm, I just wanted to tell you that I’m completely in love with you,” he said.
“I’m in love with you too,” I said as I got off my swing and pressed my lips against his.
“Thanks for running into me in the hallway,” I winked.
“Thanks for giving me a chance,” he smiled as we kissed again.

15 Laws of Life by Swami Vivekananda

1. Love Is The Law Of Life 
All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore, love for love’s sake, because it is the law of life, just as you breathe to live.

3. Life is Beautiful 
First, believe in this world - that there is meaning behind everything. Everything in the world is good, is holy and beautiful. If you see something evil, think that you do not understand it in the right light. Throw the burden on yourselves.

If money helps a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better. 

8. Uphold Your Ideals 
Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.

Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin - to say that you are weak, or others are weak. 

12. You Have The Power 
All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.
