"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet."

- Franz Kafka

This is a beautiful quote. I feel it in my soul, my blood. However, my brain says act. My brain says think. My brain tells me to repeat repeat repeat all the negative things floating around in there. It's hard to tell it to be quiet, to be still, because it feels so good to feel bad. I'm addicted to the self flagellation.
