“The average person considers their life boring or uninspiring because they’ve made little or no attempt to gain knowledge and information that will inspire them. They’re so hypnotized by their environment — through the media, through television, through unattainable ideals of physical appearance, beauty and valor that everybody struggles to become but cannot — that most people surrender and live their lives in mediocrity. And they may live those lives, and their souls, their desires, may never really rise to the surface. So, they may want to be something else. But if they do rise to the surface, and people ask themselves, ‘Is there something more’, or ‘Why am I here’? ‘What is the purpose of life’? ‘Where am I going’? ‘What happens when I die’? When they start to ask those questions, they start to flirt and interact with the perception that they may be having a nervous breakdown, and in Reality, their old concept of how they viewed their life and the world starts
to fall apart.”—Dr. Joseph Dispenza, in the movie What the Bleep Do We Know?! (via santmat)
“That’s the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.”—Charles Bukowski, Women (via philphys)
I’m sitting with friends in a rock n roll basement bar I frequent when this guy sits down and starts talking to me. I don’t know what to say to him so I decide to tell him about the time I accidentally climbed a mountain in 5” heels and a mink coat.
"So I didn’t realize they were serious and we’d actually be climbing a real mountain but there I was 7 hours later at the top."
