Wer mit Ungeheuern kämpft, mag zusehen, daß er nicht dabei zum Ungeheuer wird.
Wenn man tief genug in den Abgrund schaut, schaut der Abgrund auch in Dich.

Man muß Flügel haben, wenn man den Abgrund liebt.

freakizh "He who fights with monsters might take care, lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze too long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."
-- F. Nietzsche.
zenfishsticks drums beat in darkness
echo my thumping heart
without sight
my fear engulfs me
straining to catch
the slightest change
in air temperature

to feel death
before it catches me

whitechocolatewalrus the deep abyss has swallowed me
not sure of my ability to return
i could think of you for hours
and never conclude
all the long days
go by.
i seem to be eating myself alive
i feel so empty inside.
hiding all my thoughts
all my pain.
none can see,
not even me.
every day floats by
and i am drifting further
than ever before.
soon you will be out of sight
out of reach.
this abyss
has forsaken me
and i don't know if
i will survive.
Death of a Rose is our redoubt in this thought.
slowly hardening yourself to its fragile embrace.

timeless is forbidden,
a waste of honour.
Leland if you look into it, it will look you right in the eye and at that moment your soul is exposed

maybe you shouldn't have looked
nor i had the sudden urge to use abyss in a sentance today.
..and here we are
sameolme The A&P on a bright Saturday morning.
Standing forever in line as a price check
proceeds a lengthy discussion on whether something is on sale. Groceries pile up at the end of a perpetual conveyor belt.
sameolme The celebrities stare out from the magazine
covers taunting me with underarm disasters.
Triviality reigns.
Risen Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.
- Nietzsche

I love this quotation. The abyss is a dark place, and we see so much of it these days. But in staring into it, taking it into yourself, by allowing yourself to see the abyss within yourself... you get a chance to change. You get a chance to fight. You recognise what makes the monsters, and you channel your weaknesses into strengths. You harness your monster, and you find the strength to fight.

I have found my zen, and I don't think I'll ever lose it again.
what's it to you?
