Where power begins

titotitus:

He who loves the more is the inferior and must suffer.

Thomas Mann

We are bound together, two hearts in combat,

a struggle to discover who is the weaker,

who will uncover the other’s bed

to expose an unclothed lover waiting,

saying Come and, What took you

so long? And, You lose. You’re mine

now, like a conqueror calling the game.

—Tito Titus

"It seems to me that Our Lord, on quitting the tabernacle to come to us, says : “I am going to be incarnated in this person. I am going to unite Myself sacramentally to her in order that my personality may take the place of hers. I want to be her principle, and to elevate her being and her actions to the divine Unity. I shall think and will in her soul. I shall live in her body, love in her heart, glorify My Father in her as I glorified Him on earth in My Sacred Humanity. I am going to continue for the glory of My Father, for His love, and for the honor of this creature, My meriting and suffering life. I shall give to her actions a supernatural and divine value, and I shall be the centre of her affections and the principle of a new life, which will be the reproduction of My own life.”"

5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.

"Leave your mind alone, that is all. Don’t go along with it. After all, there is no such thing as mind apart from thoughts which come and go obeying their own laws, not yours. They dominate you only because you are interested in them."

the evolution of the consciousness and the burning up of the ego."
