"Man I can tell you after decades of self-hatred, it’s vital you love yourself. Loving yourself isn’t selfishness. That’s a power vibe. Selfishness is where you take without satisfaction: time, money, affection. You place yourself as apex in selfishness and everyone must pour into you. That’s not self-love. Self-love is where you recognize the being you are has the right to live and grow. The being you are has the right to think and feel and move within the world. A bird doesn’t question it’s flight and it doesn’t ask permission. It just throws itself and hopefully the wingspan takes over. You love yourself first, it’s like recognizing other people are out there, that everyone has the right to feel strong and be active in life. Well how do I love myself? Start small and build. Put your shoulders back a little. Breath from your gut a little. Eyes on horizon instead of your feet. Build the physicality of loving yourself. And just, get into it."

A letter to an enemy
I have bled in the forest, hidden and quiet.
I have bled in the sea, strong and fierce.
I have bled in dark places that are full of mysteries, enriched with forces beyond even our combined understanding.
I do not fear you.
"So look at the fleeting stars with fleeting eyes, and feel how the earth beneath you gives. It is all a temporary manifestation of particles and it is all unraveling to particulate silence. The bustle of the human day will come and will go. And then there will be night.
But how beautiful these moments within the dissolve. What a temporary perfection we can find in this passing world: everything good ever done, everything good that was done today and all the good people doing it, and back and back, and forward and forward. All that beauty within a universe unraveling.
Be proud of your place in the cosmos. It is small. And yet it is. How unlikely. How fantastic. And stupid. And excellent."
