Namaste means the light in me recognizes and bows to the light in you. By light, we mean the creativity, the love, the God, the differences between us that make us valuable to one another. Your essence, your presence, just being yourself, for sharing that with me, the people in this room, the people in your own life that you don’t even know that you affect. Thank you just for being who you are. I thank you and I honor you, and I encourage you to offer to your neighbor to your left and to your right ‘namaste’.“ I think that the sad thing is that it has been shrouded — like a lot of things that are inherently good but shown to us by other races or people — as something that is unattainable. When you realize that spirituality itself, it’s just there.
How important it is for her to be a positive influence in the world and the work that she does outside of comedy with (online women’s community) Smart Girls and with Worldwide Orphans Foundation.
She has taken the spirit of being part of the solution and really shaped an entire life and career for herself based on that.
That’s why it’s so beautiful and perfect that she is the voice of Joy in (2015 animated film) Inside Out, because to me it’s the essence of her being that she is brought on this Earth to bring joy and to spread positivity.
Also, my four-year-old is really obsessed with Joy and I love that I get to tell her that Joy is a friend of mine.
Tina Fey on what do you admire about Amy Poehler.
Your smile drives me wild,
Your eyes pierce through my soul.
Every time you look at me,
I want you to take me whole.
Your every essence of being draws me in,
Though I cannot have you,
For you are my forbidden sin.
The temptations forever getting stronger,
So hard not to give in,
What I wouldn’t give to feel your lips upon my skin.
This is just me being a sap but I feel like Victor is doing the things he wants to do just in order to feel okay.
Going sightseeing, eating ramen by himself at night, drinking away until morning, teasing the boy who inspired him, and laughing even though he might not really be feeling it.
I don’t know. Being in my mid-twenties and after going through a lot, I feel like I can somewhat relate to his fickleness. The facade of joy. Seconds of silent contemplation.
There are moments where you feel passionate about things, but then the next moment they slip away and you are left to chase after the next thing just so you’re not running on empty.
I feel happy for Victor in that something has caught his eye enough to make him stay true to his original intentions and not wander off to the next thing. Yuuri is the person who will make Victor less selfish, more inspired, and be truly happy. In that sense, Yuuri is special to Victor, as is Victor to Yuuri, and I feel as though this will only become more apparent as the series progresses.
Because, meeting somebody who inspires you to live your dreams and living those dreams together…that’s something beautiful.
Mum and I at mall, notice movie theatre
Me: *checks what’s playing*
Me: *seee batb*
Me, yelling: it is the essence of my being, my will to live, the fresh breath of air you get on a cool autumn morning, the sunlight streaming through a forest of pines, the–
Mum, noticing the small crowd gathering around us: *sigh* fine, fine. We can watch it again
Me: *adds twelfth tally to notebook*
Me: one step closer to nirvana
A symphony of limbs, a cacophony of skin Voices like an ocean with the tide coming in Everything I want is contained in you Reconciling flesh with soul, connecting me to Your essence, your being, your whole
And to make room, I have banished my meekness Vanity through you, my strength and my weakness Eating you with a fervor I have never felt before Relentless, contradictory, your angel and your whore “Yes” the only word we use to communicate
Abdicate your snow-white throne Vanquish me, your very own Evanescent, sticky-sweet Repeatedly my tongue to meet Yawning maw and curling feet
“I’ll say it again. I hate him. With all of my very being and essence. Everything that makes me him, and everything that makes up him is me, and I hate being so aware of that weak part of his personality-”
“We get it, Onyx. You want revenge, you hate him, blah blah blah…”
“At least I have a concrete opinion of him, Snow.” Dark Meta Knight mocked back, “One minute you dislike him, the next you stand up to him? I don’t understand what you see in someone as merciful as he.”
“He didn’t try and kill me on the spot. Of course I’d have a better opinion of him than you and Fuschia,” Lady Galacta snapped back, “We’re done here before this blows into a full argument again.”
Book character: “I don’t feel like a trauma victim. I feel like a house after a fire. And sometimes like someone who died but stayed in his body. And sometimes I feel like someone else died, like someone else sacrificed everything, so that I can have a normal life.”
Me: CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE JUST DESCRIBED THE ESSENCE OF BEING A TRAUMA VICTIM
I sail with you on the ocean of my dreams to a far away distant place of great beauty and tranquility, where suffering and pain do not exist. Where we give praises for our joy and happiness, where our love intertwines with a love for all things. Oh my beloved companion of my heart, you have reached out and touched the Essence of my Being. You have shown me the way, your Love has awakened me
