HEAD UP HIGH!
The eyes of others our prisons;
their thoughts our cages.
Nobody can say anything about you. Whatsoever people say is about themselves. But you become very shaky, because you are still clinging to a false center. That false center depends on others, so you are always looking to what people are saying about you. And you are always following other people, you are always trying to satisfy them. You are always trying to be respectable, you are always trying to decorate your ego. This is suicidal. Rather than being disturbed by what others say, you should start looking inside yourself…
Whenever you are self-conscious you are simply showing that you are not conscious of the self at all. You don’t know who you are. If you had known, then there would have been no problem— then you are not seeking opinions. Then you are not worried what others say about you— it is irrelevant!
When you are self-conscious you are in trouble. When you are self-conscious you are really showing symptoms that you don’t know who you are. Your very self-consciousness indicates that you have not come home yet.
I make it alone
When love is gone
Still you made your mark
Here in my heart
One day I’ll fly away
Leave your love to yesterday
What more can your love do for me
When will love be through with me
I follow the night
Can’t stand the light
When will I begin
My life again
(Randy Crawford - One day I’ll fly away)
Love this one! Both image and words.
Good job, Guido!
