You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.
You have gone far and we are proud of you always. I know that you will keep your relationship with your Maker as it should be, for after all, that, as you must know, is the most important thing in this life.
You have to be realistic about terrorism. Certain groups of people, certain groups, Muslim fundamentalists, Christian fundamentalists, Jewish fundamentalists, and just plain guys from Montanta, are going to continue to make life in this country very interesting for a long, long time.
You have to begin to lose your memory, if only in bits and pieces, to realize that memory is what makes our lives. Life without memory is no life at all, just as an intelligence without the possibility of expression is not really an intelligence. Our memory is our coherence, our reason, our feeling, even our action. Without it, we are nothing.
You laugh, and the world laughs with you. You cry, and you cry alone. You sing, and the mountains would echo you. You sigh, and it's lost in air. You rejoice, and the world will seek you. You grieve, and the world will walk away. You can be in sync with the world, its people and nature around you. You are the origin, and you are the center of your happiness and well being. So be thankful and enjoy life, each and every day as it comes to you. Cheer up, my friend!
You must have ability and willingness to forgive others. If you do not have these capabilities yet, you must develop them....sooner you do it, better it will be for you. Lest you forget, Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong minded and spiritually advanced folks. Also, without fotgiveness, you cannot move on in life at right pace. How can you with so much unnecessary baggage of grudges sitting on your back? With your power to forgive, your life stream will begin to flow once again, in sync with present and embracing future. Drop that baggage right away, break away from unpleasant memories and situations, make a wish, take a chance, and move on upwards and onwards. Let the life flow, and the journey continues once again, smoothly and seamlessly.
You must know that in any moment a decision you make can change the course of your life forever: the very next person stand behind in line or sit next to on an airplane, the very next phone call you make or receive, the very next movie you see or book you read or page you turn could be the one single thing that causes the floodgates to open, and all of the things that you've been waiting for to fall into place.
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land, this is no other life but this.
You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life. This is not an easy struggle. Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening the door to your own life is, in the end, more difficult than opening the doors to the mysteries of the universe.
You ought to stick with true love for life. For, it doesn't pay to stick with hatred/untrue love. Besides, to hate is just to die slowly/prematurely. But, to truly love is just to live healthily/perpetually.
You say I'm worthless yet you waste your time on me. You say i can't do anything right but you still waste your breath on me. You tell me I'm stupid yet you still try to teach me. You tell me to live my life yet you give me no life to live?
You say that my way of thinking cannot be tolerated? What of it? The man who alters his way of thinking to suit others is a fool. My way of thinking is the result of my reflections. It is part of my inner being, the way I am made. I do not contradict them, and would not even if I wished to. For my system, which you disapprove of, is also my greatest comfort in life, the source of all my happiness --- it means more to me than my life itself.
