I’ll tell you what, love. You go first. I’ll shuttle you wherever you please, though how to abandon you there (don’t you want me to visit you?), when the only heaven we’ll ever know is here?

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.Aldous Huxley (via pigmenting)
