We are together.

At last.

We call them ‘bitter hearts’ because they are bitter. Do not let yours be influenced by them, unless you favour to carry one as well.

Forgotten Letter #454 by James Andrew Crosby

Anonymous asked: What can you say about Socrates 'Know Thyself'? I don't really understand what he meant. In your own perception, how can you find happiness? Thank you :)

Socrates gave it a high value to have self-consciousness; to know what you want and need. One could bring it near self-trust and reliance. Some also describe it as knowing your own limitations.

I believe that happiness is always there; it is not something we have to create before finding it. I believe that you merely have to become aware of what you love and what you want. This can be found by observing what you cannot not do, what you cannot not think about. If you then hold on to it, and cherish it, I believe you can find happiness.

We are made for greater things, and we have greater powers and mindsets, than to waste it all for what we do not enjoy, for what does not harmonize with our nature.

Forgotten Letter #453 by James Andrew Crosby

I will leave this house and go to the airport now.
About four hours are left.

Hold You Up

We are here,
the place is now,
but we are
in the past.

Less than 24 hours until Jessica’s touch and mine will collide.
One more night to waste before we meet.

I must admit that I quite struggle with the transformation of my thoughts into words. All I can write for now, is that everything will be changed tomorrow.

Conversations with simple men were never made for me.

Forgotten Letter #452 by James Andrew Crosby

"Surely, there must be something that makes you happy?"
"I cannot think of anything, no."
"Honestly? But there must be something that brings you joy?"
"I do not know."
