Resta appena solo il tempo

per ciò che conta

When you no longer feel the need to name your feelings

as they come and go

but simply feel

that is when you come alive

Un altro giorno,

un altro colpo di remo

un'altra spinta

l'acqua si apre e si richiude, liquida

traiettorie che non lasciano tracce

Abbiate pazienza,

non ho scelto io di vivere.

Non sono nato, mi hanno nato.

Ora e' troppo tardi per non esistere.

Faccio del mio meglio, a fatica.

I cherish the rare moments

when myself disappears

from within me

even just for a short while

Volontà



Compito della volontà

è correggere le imperfezioni

del caso

Meta

My favourite concept.
One of the few concepts that separate humans from non-humans.
The ability to think about self, even before self-"conscience".

Meta-thoughts. The ability to observe the endless stream of your own thoughts appear and float inside your mind, and to gently swipe them aside at will, before you are drawn in.
Why train yourself to stop thinking, when you can train yourself to sit on the edge of your mind and observe your thoughts go by.
The ability to remain safely outside of the stream, observing. It requires training, curiosity, and compassion.

Acknowledge your thoughts and, by so doing, learn who you are.
Occasionally throw a little pebble in, perturbate the flow.  See how you reacts.
With time, learn to make it better. Choose what the you outside likes to see and wants to keep.
Choose who you will be.
