|It's what I did before going to bed, I was just reading alot of Gandhi's quotes. And then I felt guilty (well, more quilty) about something I lied to Matt about over a year ago (nothing huge or anything, haha), so I called him and we talked until 4 about silly things and everything is aokay, and I feel better about it all!
"All the religions of the world, while they may differ in other respects, unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth."
"I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and Non-violence are as old as the hills. All I have done is to try experiments in both on as vast a scale as I could."
"Morality is the basis of things and truth is the substance of all morality."
"My religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God. Non-violence is the means of realising Him."
"Non-violence and truth are inseparable and presuppose one another."
"Truth never damages a cause that is just."
So you see, that little guy talked alot about truth! And I felt it was important to do. So now I feel better, and the truth wasn't as bad as the lie. And no more lies forzever.
How are you doing Christopher?
That's beautiful! Those quotes are beautiful! You are beautiful! I feel sad now that I haven't read much of anything Gandhi has said, even though everything he says is so poignant and instrumental in changing lives.
It's so cool that you were able to come out with honesty like that. That's one of the things I value most - be it in family relations, friendships, relationships, or whatever - because honestly is the only way to view the world, at least I think. And since I have so many issues in trusting people, it's nice to know people are being frank. Especially folks whom I already trust like you.
I'm doing alright. Though I do admit, since we're on the topic of truth, that my answer is a bit of a white lie. I'm very stressed, physically. This early class I have been taking really took its toll on my body. I've always had problems sleeping, but it's become a bit worse lately, and I even got a little sick from all the stress. Luckily I noticed myself going downhill and saw a dentist.
I also realized I had kinda fallen out with all of my friends. It was really scary. Like, I had seen Amie a couple times here and there, though only for a few minutes. But since the other day, when we went to the cinemas, I realized it had been over three weeks since I had done anything social before!
Classes end this week, and I am NEVER taking another class this early ever again. That was WAY too much commitment, hahah. But it was a good experience for me, I know, even though it sucked. I've always been healthy physically, and seeing my body going through so many negatives has given me more commitment to add in the positives I've been neglecting for so long. I'm trying to stop eating meat, and have been trying lots of vegetables I wouldn't have eaten if I was forced to. Hopefully I'll be vegetarian, maybe by this time next year. (but meat is sooooo tasttyyyyyy!!!) I've been trying to ride my bike more too, and I've certainly been trying to become more social with folks. So things may have dipped down really low without me noticing, but I'm making an honest effort to turn it around. So "alright" will have to suffice, since it's not really bad or good, eh?
And how are you, my dearest Leslie?
