You think fairy tales are only for girls? Here’s a hint – ask yourself who wrote them. I assure you, it wasn’t just the women. It’s the great male fantasy – all it takes is one dance to know that she’s the one. All it takes is the sound of her song from the tower, or a look at her sleeping face. And right away you know – this is the girl in your head, sleeping or dancing or singing in front of you. Yes, girls want their princes, but boys want their princesses just as much. And they don’t want a very long courtships. They want to know immediately.
This is why we call people exes, I guess – because the paths that cross in the middle end up separating at the end. It’s too easy to see an X as a cross-out. It’s not, because there’s no way to cross out something like that. The X is a diagram of two paths.
A year. A thousand kisses. And now a thousand one, a thousand two. There are so many other place we could have ended up, but I have to believe
none of them would have felt this right. “All I want is you” is not entirely true. I want so much more, and with you I think I can get it.
You know they say that there’s still six to twelve minutes of brain activity after everything else is shutdown. And a second of dream consciousness, well, that’s infinitely longer than a waking second.
So then six to twelve minutes of brain activity, I mean, that could be your whole life.
maybe right now i’m really an old woman about to die, looking back on my life. and my waking life, is her memories.
or maybe i just exist in your mind.
It’s like there’s this whole telepathic thing going on that we’re all a part of, whether we’re conscious of it or not. That would explain why there are all these seemingly spontaneous, worldwide, innovative leaps in science, in the arts. The same results poppin’ up everywhere independent of each other. Some guy on a computer, he figures something out, and then almost simultaneously a bunch of other people all over the world figure out the same thing.
They did this study. They isolated a group of people over time, and they monitored their abilities at crossword puzzles in relation to the general population. And they secretly gave them a day-old crossword, one that had already been answered by thousands of other people. And their scores went up dramatically, like 20 percent. So it’s like once the answers are out there, people can pick up on ‘em. It’s like we’re all telepathically sharing our experiences.
“Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia.
You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it.
You just use the future to escape the present.”
And in your attempt to escape it, your eyes become closed to all that is around you.
You miss out on the life you are experiencing in this moment.
There is nothing else but what you have right now, in the present.
There are a multitude of paths you can choose to take within your life’s labyrinth, but none of them are certain.
The only thing that exists, and has become a reality, is this present moment.
Deal with the future when it becomes your present.
All you have, is right now.
