Searching for madness.....

O Enrique sugeriu, eu fui.

"A friend asked yesterday if this blog is addressed to anyone in particular? I said yes– it’s a love letter to someone I haven’t met yet."

Jonathan Carrol

"The greatest courage in life is to lose yourself — and that’s the primary requirement of love. Unless you lose yourself you cannot be in love. You can play the game called love, but you will never know the reality of love. You will be doing something else in the name of love. Deep down it will only be an ego trip — and love can never be an ego trip. Ego has to be dissolved, only then does love flow in you. And that is real courage. In a deep sense it is committing suicide — not of the body but of the mind. It is becoming mindless. Hence love looks to people like something mad, insane. In a way it is true, it is mad. Going beyond the mind is a certain kind of madness. Of course it is divine madness and it brings a sanity of its own kind. It beings an insight, an understanding, but is is totally different from intellectual understanding. It is not of the mind, it is of the beyond."

“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no whenever you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.”

Heheheh aeeee, alguém ouviu minha sugestão!! Ah, eu adoro ficar fuçando no blog do Jonathan Carroll, sempre encontro coisas geniais escondidas por lá...uma pena que ele não seja conhecido aqui no Brasil, e nenhum dos livros dele tenha sido traduzido =(. Um dos meus livros favoritos, top 10 mesmo, é justamente dele, e chama "White Apples"...eu escrevi sobre ele lá no blog (aqui ó: http://bit.ly/itkwJ8 ) e volta e meia tenho vontade de reler :~
