is it true that your mind is sometimes like a battering ram running all through the city, shouting so madly inside and out about the ten thousand things that do not matter? –Hafiz
Can I simplify my mind the same way I simplify my wardrobe? Trying to pair my clothing down to only basics, get rid of everything extraneous.
Like meditation for my clothing.
I never actually meditate. I swim in a sea of distractions so I won’t ever have to be alone with myself. Wake up, cook/shower/call boyfriend/ finish making my Hindi vocab flashcards for the week/ blog / donate some clothes / get started on my massive to-do list/bike/ 8 hours of work (studying on my breaks) / bike home/ chit chat with roommates, read until I fall asleep.
WHICH BY THE WAY I am reading an extremely interesting book involving cognitive dissonance, corrupt politicians, corrupt researchers, and other things that I love. We we lie to ourselves. How we justify our own hypocrisy. Also I think it might be fixing my writers block somehow.
