I believe in nature.

I believe in life.

I believe in magic.

I believe in the sun and the moon shining.

I believe in willpower.

I believe in dreams and wishes.

I believe in strenght.

I believe in our world and galaxy turning and turning in an ever expanding universe.

And us in it, breathing.

“To me it’s all about trust and loyalty. I need someone I can trust to be myself with. Someone who won’t spill my secrets to another person, even if it’s someone who they trust and are close to.

I need someone who is loyal. I’ve had too many people just leave from my life – Walk out, just like that. Too many who have replaced me. I need someone who won’t simply ditch me for someone else because they’re funner, or more open, or belong to another crowd.

I need someone I can count on. Because I’d be willing to do all of that for someone, and so much more.” – Author Unknown

1. There are two basic motivating forces: Fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. – John Lennon

2. It’s easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present and their past, but you’d be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often than not, it’s lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul. – Sherrilyn Kenyon

3. To find the universal elements enough; To find the air and the water exhilarating; To be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; To be thrilled by the stars at night; To be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – These are some of the rewards of the simple life. – John Burroughs

4. Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; The second is to be kind; And the third is to be kind. – Henry James

5. Things are as they are. Looking out into the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations. – Alan Watts

Jeg har ikke ord for hvor høyt jeg elsker Blackmill jeg, for mer drømmende og deilig musikk skal man lete langt og lenge etter, altså. I tillegg elsker jeg alle de fine videoene som ligger ute på Youtube til låtene deres, og da jeg søkte opp Fortune Soul var det egentlig ganske vanskelig å bestemme seg for hvilken jeg skulle legge ut her, for denne er minst like fin som den jeg allerede har lagt ut. Åh.

1. Love is a puzzle. You’re frantically trying to put together the pieces to find the right ones that fit. The puzzle is made up of your family, your friends, the people around you that care about you. But there’s always that one piece that’s missing, and when you find that specific piece, you don’t let it sit all by itself; You pair it off with its correct fit. And when those pieces fit together, it’s an addition to a beautiful picture. But that doesn’t mean failed attempts are pointless. Just because on the first attempt to fit the pieces together you don’t get it right doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try again. It’s the pain that lets us appreciate how perfect the match is. If it wasn’t for that pain, we would never understand what true love is. You might find the missing piece on the first try, or on the fifth, but either way, you’ve found it and that should be beautiful enough. – Author Unknown

2. You don’t need to give reasons for the things you do – you just have to do what you want. And sometimes the thing that seems messed up to everyone else is what’s right for you. You have to do it and not be ashamed for it. – Kristen Stewart

3. When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. – Henri J.M. Nouwen

4. I’ve made mistakes in my life. I’ve let people take advantage of me and I’ve accepted way less than I deserve. But, I’ve learned from my bad choices and even though there are some things that I can’t ever get back, and people who will never be sorry, I’ll know better next time and I won’t settle for anything less than what I deserve. – Author Unknown

5. I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don’t want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines, and sing out loud in the car with the windows open, and wear pink shoes, and stay up all night laughing, and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets, and throw parties, and eat ripe tomatoes, and read books so good they make me jump up and down. – Shauna Niequist

It doesn’t interest me
what you do for a living.
I want to know
what you ache for
and if you dare to dream
of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me
how old you are.
I want to know
if you will risk
looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me
what planets are
squaring your moon.
I want to know
if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened
by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know
if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know
if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you
to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations
of being human.

It doesn’t interest me
if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear
the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know
if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live
or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me
who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me
where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know
what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know
if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like
the company you keep
in the empty moments.

Oriah Mountain Dreamer, The Invitation
