I'm not sure when all of this became such a burden. Most people say that your heart knows where you need to go, where you need to be and with who you need to be. But what if your heart doesn't talk to you anymore? I get into a local train and feel suffocated more... Continue Reading →

Insatiable Desires

All truth is either judgement or observation. *** Some people are never happy with anything they have. They can't find in themselves that satisfying feeling which tells them, "Oh yes, this is pretty good. I feel fine." No, they don't. There's never enough. Not enough sugar in tea.
