I know you guys think I am obsessive at times. And I don't disagree. Believe me, I know that I go overboard sometimes.
But this is part of the reason why I love Jason Mraz so much- just read this:
I'm not the person you want to meet. The music is. And the music is alive in you as much as it is in me. We created it together. Therefore, you already know me. We've already hugged and kissed. We grew close for a moment and then said our goodbyes.
It took my breath away.
The clouds of potential thought are heavy today. It feels like rain. I fear what would happen if I identified too strongly with one of those clouds. To do so would be to let my mind stop me from having a good time. And so, I take cover under the umbrella of the Tao Te Ching.
Being and non-being are born of each other,
Difficulty and ease form one another,
Long and short mutually define,
High and Low to each other incline,
Tone and voice as one align,
Front and back each other bind.
-Lao Tzu, translated by Patrick Byrne
It takes a crane to build a crane.
Thanks for building me.
I love his words.
I love how he puts them together.
I want to be able to do that.
