Energy of the Week of the Ruler

During the Week of the Ruler we have to fight the tendency to get too bossy and not listen to what others have to offer.

A feeling of omniscience can lead us to not admit our mistakes or follow constructive criticism. An undeniable tendency to grow cold, detached and judgmental must be countered with efforts to be more open and loving.

By not taking ourselves so seriously we will be better able to enjoy group activities, sharing good times with others.

Advice for the Week of the Ruler

  • Let others take the lead more often.
  • You may be wise, but remember that wise men learn more from fools than fools from wise men.
  • Work hard at trying to admit mistakes when you make them.
  • There is no particular merit in holding on to an outworn creed or outdated idea.

My fear of life is necessary to me, as is my illness. Without anxiety and illness, I am a ship without a rudder. My art is grounded in reflections over being different from others. My sufferings are part of my self and my art. They are indistinguishable from me, and their destruction would destroy my art. I want to keep those sufferings.
- Edvard Munch  (via petrichour)

I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love.
- Kuba Wojewodzki, Polish journalist and comedian (via wordsthat-speak)
I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.
- Kristin Armstrong (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

Because of the recent passing of the beloved Robin Williams and his struggle with depression/bi-polar disease, I’ve been seeing more and more people coming out and being more vocal about their personal experiences with mental illness. For over a year, I’ve been debating whether or not to be a little more open about it and post it on Facebook in particular, because I’d be exposing a darker part of me to family, old classmates, collegues, and friends in fear that I would be a part of an exchange of malicious comments and insensitve, careless gossip. But I think I’m going to take the leap anyway, because there’s something that I believe that is more important than keeping face.

A wild longing for strong emotions and sensations seethes in me, a rage against this toneless, flat, normal and sterile life.

I want to live simply. I want to sit by the window when it rains and read books I’ll never be tested on. I want to paint because I want to, not because I’ve got something to prove. I want to listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high and wake up slowly, with no place to rush off to. I want not to be governed by money or clocks or any of the artificial restraints that humanity imposes on itself. I just want to be, boundless and infinite.

I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.

How to save money while shopping online

1. Browse the store and open a tab for each item that piqued your interest.

2. After opening 15+ tabs, take a moment to look through each of them to see if it’s available in desired size/color/etc., and then decide whether or not to put in shopping bag.

3. Repeat.

4. Once satisfied, take a look at your shopping bag. Decide what you want/need, remove anything you deem unnecessary, and try to strip your totals down to your reasonable spending range of $0.00. 

5. Once you’re ready to checkout, close the tab, and pretend it never happened.

6. ???? ?

7. Save money!
