17 Days

Until the new journey begins. New synchronicities are showing up everywhere, screaming to me that this is the right path, and I feel it so strongly and deeply now. I’ve never been more ready. Future Arta, remember how you felt this year. I hope that nothing or nobody makes you feel this way again, and know that you overcame so much - you are stronger than you think, and never forget that. You could still love so deeply despite everything, and that is what makes you worthy of love from others. Don’t push people away like you’ve been doing, let the right people in. Remember your ability to love. Remember your ability to feel pain. And remember your ability to overcome it. Things will turn around and it will all be good again soon, I promise. It’s all going to be okay, more than okay. It will be your time to shine and enjoy the well-deserved happiness that’s approaching. 

Read this whenever you’re feeling low, because you have no more reasons to be unhappy. You are great! I love you!

My jumper is cooler than yours!
Perhaps, some day, humanity can start afresh, a new world, a tabula rasa, a world with a mind without prior experiences. No memories and no pain. A day when the ones with abundance do not look down at the poor and the needy, a day when we learn to care for the victims, the fallen souls of civilization and advancement, a day when the world will be pure. When all of humanity becomes a clean sheet of parchment, without knowledge and prejudice, simple, hungry for knowing, tasting, and feeling; hungry for life and ready to absorb the ink of experience.
- Henry Martin
