the all encompassing positive

"The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn’t live boldly enough, that they didn’t invest enough heart, didn’t love enough. Nothing else really counts at all."

- Ted Hughes (via emotional-algebra)

Anonymous asked: Sometimes i love communicating with people, and sometimes it's just so hard. I just wish we could skip all those layers of seperation and mush our consciousness together and know eachother completely.


I’m rather thankful for the parts I can’t know. I don’t think knowledge is needed all that much although I do believe in the notion of a shared consciousness, each part contributing to forming the whole. But is it a matter of “complete knowledge”? Does that create the sense of wholeness when getting close to others? Does wholeness and tearing down the “layers of sepration” mean that you’ve indeed come to know a different being completely and in all ways? I think that sense of utter knowledge can never exist and that’s precisely its beauty. It can never quite be, except for the rare moments that it is depending on whether we trust it enough. But it can never quite be hence the unattainable, hence the mystery, hence the captivating sense of what feels like individually finding yourself connected with an other person. Authentically connected in moments; moments emerging from the whole as well as forming it. The briefness of it, the futility of it illustrates the deepest essence of it.
