    I saw Andrew for the first time today

    since "the incident." We both acted like nothing happened, but I can tell he is upset. He also has a girlfriend, who I've actually never met. We've been friends for 4 years, and they've been dating for almost a year and a half. From what I've heard about her I already don't like...

    I don't want to repeat the loop infinitely

    until this world kill us because we have killed it, the path of freedom may involve removing our ego and ourselves from the ecuation, only then we can be truly free because we are not tied to our limitations and we have nothing to prove to anyone. Life is chaotic and there is...

    Lover of poetry and simplicity,

    I seek to enrich my life experiences by conversing with a variety of individuals, sharing the daily life experiences and emotional rolercoaster that life tends to thrust upon each of us. Love and peace to all!

    I'm happy to know that it ends,

    that there is a day when I'm not here anymore, it magically makes me see the real value of this moment. That there will be a time when I will be amazed by everything again, and everything will be new. In my most spiritual moments I've seen places beyond this earth, moments...

    I think what makes Love beautiful is the fact

    that most of the time we cannot have what we want. The struggle happens only when we try to wrestle with this fact.

    I don't think Forgiveness

    and Love exist on the same plane. Judgement and forgiveness do. You can only forgive those whom you have judged. Love keeps no record of wrongs and hence it can't forgive.
