Just because…

youthinkucantellheavenfromhell:

I wanted to start drawing again and I thought I’d participate in this weeks art assignment. I’ve watching the art assignment videos and responses for a bit now and think it’s a really great project, so I really wanted to do this.

I chose to make a gif about my bookshelf (one of them, but this one has the most important books). 

The first row are mainly YA fiction books, some of them I have read a dozen times, a few of them I haven’t even read yet. They are extremely valuable to me as they connect me to certain parts of my life and have probably taught me more than most of my school classes. 

The second row are my books on film, art and the two diarys I’ve had so far. The books on making film have taught me many many things about the industry I want to go into, and have helped me a lot in our film club at school. There’s also a clapperboard I got from my parents a couple years ago, though I’ve never used it :) 

Third row is mainly just old magazines, one of them I to get for almost seven years or so. 

These are the books that are most valuable to me, either because they have a lot of memories attached to them, or because they thaught me the knowledge that I hope will help me in my future.

( I thought I’d ad in a picture of the complete bookshelf at the end, though I’ll replace it with a better one, once I get back to my camera)

It is possible to count bacteria, but when you lose track write down a random number and no one will question it.

Something to think about…

Places of thought and wonder

My conversation with a Yale grad. He was accepted to every Ivy League, and is currently at one of the top occupations in Microsoft.

Him:

I know right now, everything seems so unfair. You need to study, all to get compared with other people. Your future is dependent mostly on whether you go to this school, major in this thing, receive this much money, or get this job. I know. I was there, I was you. Studying my ass off for an easier life. You're told that everything right now is the most important, that you need to get As, go to a great college, have an amazing job, generate immense revenue, therefore become happy. But, there's just on thing that I failed to understand. And let me tell you, there are barely any things that I do not understand. Yet, I have no idea why I'm not happy. From a young age, you're told to take these steps and if you succeed, you'll reach happiness. It's not true. I've done every step every mother would tell her child to do, to become, but here I am, unhappy. After many years of trying to find where I went wrong, I realized that I had been looking in the completely wrong place.

Me:

Then where do you look?

Him:

At your friends. Your relationships. Your family. Your coworkers, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your social life. Many of the richest men in the world aren't happy, why? Because they spent all their lives trying to achieve happiness in the wrong place. You have a ton of money, great. But in the end, we're all sitting in our rocking chairs, and nobody cares who had the most money or who went to the best college. It's about who had the most fun. Who had the most people to look after them, who had the most to look after. The happiest are the ones that have people to call in times of trouble, the ones that had the time to spend with their family and feel all that love. That's what people lack! Love. When you're on your deathbed, everything doesn't matter anymore you see. You'd want people that love you to be around you, to be comforting you, to tell you about all the great things you did for people. You don't want to be alone, with what? A degree? Cash that will never be used? Nobody ever says "wow, I went to a great college and therefore I'm satisfied" in the end. Only the lucky ones get to say "wow, I was surrounded by love my whole life. My time on this earth was beautiful."

Me:

Him:

But you know, I'm not telling you not to get into a great college or not to do any of the things society tells you to. Go for it, it pays off! It doesn't give you happiness but it takes a lot of stress off your shoulders. All I'm saying is don't make it your everything. If you don't get in somewhere good, don't stress about it. As long as you're okay with the people around you, you're going to be fine. I'm sure of it. Priorities change in the end. We're only people.

Formlessness is sought in order to assume all forms.
Not molding. Not static.
Adapting to the moment as the situation transforms.

The cup that is to be filled must first be empty.
No partiality. No resistance
The void makes room for totality.

The desired state of mind is…

A farmer had only one horse, and one day the horse ran away. The neighbors came to condole over his terrible loss. The farmer said, “What makes you think it is so terrible?”

A month later, the horse came home–this time bringing with her two beautiful wild horses. The neighbors became…
