“I walked on the banks of the tin-can banana dock and sat down under the huge shade of a Southern Pacific locomotive to look at the sunset over the box-house hills and cry. Jack Kerouac sat beside me… companion… we thought the same thoughts of the soul… surrounded by the gnarled steel roots of the trees of machinery.”
— Alan Ginsberg
It is okay to feel sad, sometimes. It is a normal and healthy part of life. But don’t plan to stay there. Be ready to move through it, like a locomotive. Remember that sadness is not who you are. You are Spirit. You are Joy. You are Light. You were created to be the reflection and the conduit of everything that is Good in the Universe. You were created to be the eyes, the ears, the pleasure, and the laughter of God.
