“When you find your path, you will also find your love story. People today are consumed by doubts about their relationships: Have I found the right partner? Am I being true to myself? Have I given the best part of myself away? As a result, there is a restless kind of consumer shopping for partners, as if the “right” one can be found by toting up a potential mate’s pluses and minuses until the number of pluses matches some mythical standard. The path to love, however, is never about externals. However good or bad you feel about your relationship, the person you are with at this moment is the “right” person, because he or she is a mirror of who you are inside. Our culture hasn’t taught us this (as it has failed to teach us so much about spiritual realities). When you struggle with your partner, you are struggling with yourself. Every fault you see in them touches a denied weakness in yourself. Every conflict you wage is an excuse not to face a conflict within. The path to love therefore clears up a monumental mistake that millions of people make—the mistake that someone “out there” is going to give (or take) something that is not already yours. When you truly find love, you find yourself.
Therefore the path to love isn’t a choice, for all of us must find out who we are. This is our spiritual destiny. The path can be postponed; you can lose faith in it or even despair that love exists at all. None of that is permanent; only the path is. Doubt reflects the ego, which is bound in time and space; love reflects God, eternal divine essence. The ultimate promise on the path to love is that you will walk in the light of a truth extending beyond any truth your mind presently knows.”—Deepak Chopra (via mindofataurus)
my social studies teacher once told us “human beings are the most selfish of all. even when someone dies, you shed tears only because they are no more around to provide you with whatever they had been for so long”
and it has been 3 years since she said this and this is still what i think about at night
“Previously on Orphan Black: Tatiana Maslany threw herself in front of a train in front of Tatiana Maslany, and then Tatiana Maslany stole Tatiana Maslany’s identity and pretended to be Tatiana Maslany. And then Tatiana Maslany got shot in the head in front of Tatiana Maslany, and Tatiana Maslany got rid of Tatiana Maslany’s body. And then Tatiana Maslany met two other Tatiana Maslanys and one of those Tatiana Maslanys pretended to be Tatiana Maslany. And then Tatiana Maslany figured out that Tatiana Maslany was trying to kill all of the other Tatiana Maslanys, and Tatiana Maslany, pretending to be Tatiana Maslany, went after Tatiana Maslany and stabbed Tatiana Maslany with a metal rod. And then Tatiana Maslany ate jello with Tatiana Maslany. And one time Tatiana Maslany got drunk and Tatiana Maslany pretended to be Tatiana Maslany and yelled at Tatiana Maslany’s husband. Then Tatiana Maslany convinced Tatiana Maslany not to shoot Tatiana Maslany, and then later Tatiana Maslany hugged Tatiana Maslany and Tatiana Maslany poured Tatiana Maslany a glass of wine. And then Tatiana Maslany shot Tatiana Maslany. And then Tatiana Maslany told Tatiana Maslany that all of the Tatiana Maslanys were property. and THAT’S what you missed on Orphan Black.”—my sister (sassy-tommo-17) recapping Orphan Black (via westside-bow)
I’m not a hater. I’m actually a huge fan. But Beyonce sucked in Epic and is not a good voice actor. She put in 0 effort and sounded nothing like a queen. It was so distracting that I was happy her character died.
