Artists have placed a giant poster depicting a child’s face in an area of Pakistan where US drone attacks occur.  The project is called #NotABugSplat. This is in response to drone operators who refer to casualities as bug splats, cause from afar, viewed on monitors, that’s all the victims look like. The artists are hoping to have more artworks placed across Pakistan where drone strikes are frequent to help humanise victims to the strikers and the world.

How to Live Like You’re on Vacation
When you are your own best friend, you don’t endlessly seek out relationships, friendships, and validation from the wrong sources because you realize that the only approval and validation you need is your own. - Mandy Hale (via danipremalima)
And kid, you’ve got to love yourself. You’ve got wake up at four in the morning, brew black coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn. You’ve got to sit next to the man at the train station who’s reading your favorite book and start a conversation. You’ve got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower. Then you’ve got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought for four dollars at the local grocery store. You’ve got to stop taking everything so goddam personally. You are not the moon kissing the black sky. You’ve got to compliment someones crooked brows at an art fair and tell them that their eyes remind you of green swimming pools in mid July. You’ve got to stop letting yourself get upset about things that won’t matter in two years. Sleep in on Saturday mornings and wake yourself up early on Sunday. You’ve got to stop worrying about what you’re going to tell her when she finds out. You’ve got to stop over thinking why he stopped caring about you over six months ago. You’ve got to stop asking everyone for their opinions. Fuck it. Love yourself, kiddo. You’ve got to love yourself. - unknown  (via irynka)

Desire and Craving

'Desire is everywhere. Every living thing has the desire to stay alive. Even plants “strive” to propagate themselves. Craving is our creator. Our parents' craving for each other and our craving for rebirth combined to create us. Even painful feelings give rise to craving. When a painful feeling arises, we do not like it. We wish to get rid of the pain, and we wish to enjoy some pleasure. Both wishes are craving.

The truth is, we really don’t want to be free from desire or to admit that clinging to the pleasures of the senses - the taste of delicious food; the sound of music, gossip, or a joke; the touch of sexual embrace - ends unavoidably in disappointment and suffering. We don’t have to deny that pleasant feelings are pleasurable. But we must remember that like every other feeling, pleasure is impermanent. Wishing to keep any person, place, possession or experience with us forever is hopeless!

We use mindfulness to penetrate the superficiality of our desire and reflect: “If I cling to this object, I will end up in pain… I can’t hold on to it for ever; I have no way of controlling it. If I get involved in it, I’ll lose my mindfulness. I have enjoyed many things in life… where are they now? Why should I sacrifice this precious moment for the sake of superficial satisfaction?… let me not think of it.” Because of mindfulness, our desire fades away, at least for the moment. When it disappears, we notice that it is gone. We reflect, “That desire is no longer in my mind.” We remain mindful to make sure that it does not come back.

Pleasure without pain is possible only as we progress toward higher states of mindfulness. Unlike sensory pleasure that leads only to an instant of temporary happiness, the joy we feel when we achieve deep concentration brings peace and tranquility. This beneficial feeling is accompanied by energy and focus, along with the wholesome desire to experience the wonderful feeling of joy again and again.’
