One who seeks

My destination is no longer a place, rather a new way of seeing. Marcel Proust

I love this quote. It spreads extremely high energy. It inspires. It shows that new growth is all around us, we just need to expand our ideas, thinking, or outlook. We have to remember – creativity is endless power. And you are the spark needed to fuel a massive fire of truth. Do not doubt this power. Each poem, story, or novel carries a kernel of wisdom and your vision. You may feel you don’t know if you are doing it right. You may feel you are in the middle of imaginary stagnation. Lift your eyes to the horizon and continue! Be the one who seeks… just go with it and allow this feeling to revitalize your spirit. Enjoy an exciting new phase in your special author’s journey! 

I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and I still am, but I no longer seek in the stars or in books; I’m beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves. Hermann Hesse

As promised, I’m sharing the short story Wise, Horny, and Wrong. Genre: absurdist, surreal, adult humor, 18+ 😉

    But, you know that high-energy quote was created by a man who spent most of his life in bed.

      lol yes 😂 I guess it was his way of seeing :)) btw, lately, I feel its much easier to write in the evening, before sleep, than in the morning. It seems the bed is a magical place 🤔

  2. How timely. I am plagued with self-doubt about my ability to write a poem I’m drafting. Is it good poetry? Does it contribute to how people perceive the world? Will readers enjoy it? Will it make them think or feel?
    I’ve never been comfortable with my poetry writing talent, but I do love writing poetry. I guess the important thing is to keep trying, keep writing, keep reading poetry.
    Great post right when I needed it 🙂 <3

      Couldn’t answer right away… always something in this house! 😅

      I think if you really like it & believe your poem is delivering the message=idea=emotion – that’s enough & plus, automatically, the most important 🙂
      Also, to some ppl it will speak at once, to others – later. Maybe some need more years* to grow up to get what the poem/author is trying to express 😉😉

    Apart from the names, that could have been written about me.

    So much truth in this, RNB. Stagnation IS imaginary . . obstacles are in the mind, and when you loose yourself from doubt, it’s all right there for you.

    I feel the vibe. I didn’t know Proust spent most of his life in bed either!

    • Victoria Ray NB says:

      He slept all day (bcz of illness I think), and stayed up all night usually, writing:))

    • Victoria Ray NB says:

      I read it in the book this year, diff life-facts of famous writers…

  6. Enjoyed the story, VR. Lifting one’s eyes to the horizon is the only way to keep creating. Well done. 👑

  7. Writing is like life – a journey.

  8. Holy smokes, that’s a stunning quote: “… it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves” This will resonate with me for a while.

    Also, I’m looking forward to reading the short story.

    • Victoria Ray NB says:

      Yeah, great words 🙂 just wanted to share it. Glad u liked it ☀️😀

  9. Enjoyed the story! 💙

  10. Speaking from the view of a traveler for the past few years, I love these quotes. I thought I might find a new physical destination where there would reside peace and happiness and wonder. I did find some amazing and magical places, but the peace, and happiness, and wonder came from within 🙂 Perhaps the places helped channel that. They were places where the Ancestors reside, and perhaps I did too in past lives 🙂

  11. BTW, I stole your quote, but I did give you an attribution 🙂

    • Victoria Ray NB says:

      No problems 🙂 thanks for mentioning… I’ll check now, I had no time, because of the guests (and preparations for the guests lol)
