St. Hildegard von Bingen, Doctor of the Church (via getmetoanunnery)
#one of the things that cuts me to the quick #is how easily-dismissed parallels between God and sexuality are #because there’s this strange nebulous area in the human consciousness #which we have demarcated for things that feel like they arise from beyond us #yet have their most profound impact within us #and sexuality and God both fall within that area #beyond and yet within #it isn’t a choice we’ve made consciously; it’s arisen from without #yet its most lasting and deepest effects are within #and so when Hildegard or Catherine write about God in (sometimes explicitly) sexual terms they get written off as repressed #when really it makes sense that they would use the same language because it feels like the same phenomenon (notbecauseofvictories)
this is one of those things which is a lot more funny in your head

That is beautiful
This post is for all of you who have survived the urge to end your life, either coming out the other side or still fighting to stay alive.
I noticed how when someone has a physical illness such as cancer, and they come out the other side or even remission, they are able to celebrate surviving. I think all of the survivors of being suicidal should too.
Congratulations, and keep on fighting.

i could watch this forever
“If I knew that today would be the last time I’d see you, I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul. If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door, I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more. If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice, I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again. If I knew this is the last time I see you, I’d tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already.”—Gabriel García Márquez
