Those who feel, that feelings are overrated
don’t know the power of a feeling.
We feel squashed by the vices of others—tightening, to control.
Feeling alive—is so rare a feeling—when we travel to unfamiliar places
or believe that we have magic at our fingertips.
Music and words come out of us like grandiosity
It’s a much-needed detachment from reality.
We have to believe that what we are doing is more important than decisions made by governments
because this significant feeling, is not so insignificant.
To feel that we matter, and to help others feel the same
is an artform—or a drug. It can’t be said plainly. It must be believed. It must be felt, to be real.
And for this feeling to be real—it requires significant proof—a major work.
But the trick is to hold onto this feeling each time you work—and there are many ways to access it
Sitting in a Ferrari, wearing a new suit, drinking espresso, enjoying a beautiful painting
and the more potent variety: playing Mozart on the piano, reading Nietzsche, exploring attitudes of the defiant and interesting
And lastly: doing it yourself, in all its glory.
If you feel like a rock star, when you are sitting in solitude
you have achieved this feeling
And it’s a feeling, I keep wanting to feel—like luck, or some mystical spiritual experience
that lands on me like a butterfly.
Success is a drug—but it’s not what we accomplish that gives us this high
It’s the feeling.
