To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation. This creates an endless preoccupation with past and future and an unwillingness to honor and acknowledge the present moment and allow it to be.The compulsion arises because the past gives you an identity and the future holds the promise of salvation, of fulfillment in whatever form. Both are illusions. -Eckhart Tolle
“Schvilo - when you go to Bangkong (what’s she’s calling Bangkok) all I ask - can you pleaz pick me up diamond and emerald earrings. Good ones schvilo! I have emerald ring and I cannot wear wiz out. All ze Russians are buying ze diamonds in Bangkok.”
- Mom #2
I was at a total loss for words. First, I’ve never known or heard of Bangkok being the spot for reputable fine jewelry. Second, she’s the only person in the world I know who doesn’t just want a shirt that says “Someone who visited the pumping pussy palace loves me” - she needs straight up diamond and emerald earrings.
