"You are immortal; you’ve existed for billions of years in different manifestations, because you are Life, and Life cannot die. You are in the trees, the butterflies, the fish, the air, the moon, the sun. Wherever you go, you are there, waiting for yourself."
"The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact, non-Westerners never do."
Robert J. C. Young, Postcolonialism, A Very Short Introduction (via ottamon)
"He has broken through the walls, and torn down the veils as if his life depended on it.
I am exposed, yet fully clothed.
He looked into my eyes searching, then recognized my soul.
Refreshing my memory, by brushing up on our galactic history.
There’s always this recurrence every single lifetime of searching, and finally finding you.
I am tired of the cycle.
Always hoping it will never be too late to genuinely love you.
It doesn’t matter what form you choose… a cat, a tree, or the moon."
