"The secret is this: when you find yourself being pried out of hiding by none other than your own painfully lucid awareness of reality,
Breathe. Touch your eyelashes. Let yourself feel the orderly beauty of your own mortality in the ever-shifting and chaotic scramble that is life. You are as real as anything will ever be. You are the slave of and the master over the way that you interpret and perceive the entire world as you make it.
Be sad and mean it. But let your heart fill with euphoria from time to time too. What have you got to lose?
Whatever it is, you made it up, so either fucking embrace it or flee.”"
