He thinks that we all have an unbreakable soul that is fully developed before we're born and then its like a journey for that soul through our life.
This is a beautiful idea I think because it means that no matter all the hard times you go through, you can always find back to yourself and who you really are.
And maybe we really know deep down during it all, maybe we know everything. Maybe we know exactly what to do and what is right and what is wrong, it's just that some of our experiences numb that knowledge...?
I was always taught that our personalities are a mix of DNA and experiences we have gone through to shape us.
Honestly, I don't know which is true, but the last theory seems kind of boring and so I don't want to believe it. And for me, belief and faith is more real than scientifically supported theories.
I really feel like life for me has never been about finding myself.
It has been about proving what I once knew...
I've always tried to find a place where I could finally feel at home, a place where I could finally be myself.
Have you ever felt that sometimes you can see things, experience things, and you look at it and you feel like you are not a part of it at all? These experiences can be ugly or pretty but still, they're not a part of you, and you're not a part of them? It's all just a really tiring commercial, and you're waiting to get to the actual show?
So how can these things be real if they don't make you feel alive? Maybe you start to wonder whether it is YOU who is not a real person.
Do you know what I think? I think that reality is what is inside of us. Reality is what you feel, during what ever happens.
LOVE may be the only thing which is definite in the world, something that most of us know so much about, without the ability to really explain what it is.
Therefore, the love you have for one person is a thousand times more real than anything bad you ever experienced.
Using this weird theory of mine, you can choose to build your character on the notion that in a way; bad things never happened to you, because they did not make you feel real.
If you stay in that moment that you loved someone, that moment you felt more real and more alive than you ever felt before; if you explain the rest of the world by this love, you see everything through this love, - then I believe you will see the TRUTH.
And if you do this, I promise you will start to feel this endless generousity and love for the world, which ultimately will make you a good person!
And now that I have found that place, I look back at my life.... Feeling like everything I experienced painted many different paintings of the same room. Some of the paintings were really ugly and the room which they tried to portray was almost unrecognizable.
But now I'm standing in that actual room that was desperately attempted to capture in all the paintings.... And I walk around in it and I live in it...
and it is unexplainable, un-paintable, just like LOVE - it is REAL.
To me evil, bad things are merely a desperate attempt to paint a picture, but it can never be completely real, because you are not a part of it.
So why is it that one person who had a bad childhood grows up to be a caring, loving, friendly human being, while another person with the same background grows up to be a cold, brutal killer? I think it's because the brutal killer caved in to the painting which was placed before him, and he became a part of it.
So if you believe in that we have souls or not, if you have ever loved I think you still know what I'm talking about.
A sceptic might say that falling in love is only a sort of addiction which is developed in the center of the brain which makes you addicted to drugs.
Well like I said before: belief is stronger and more real to me than scientifically supported theories, why? Because belief is something you can FEEL.
Have a great time wherever you are my loves <3
