The most common form of despair is not being who you are.
Soren Kierkegaard, born on 5 May 1813, with Sun in Taurus and Moon in Cancer, Danish philosopher.
Which is more difficult, to awaken one who sleeps or to awaken one who, awake, dreams that he is awake?” “Never cease loving a person, and never give up hope for him, for even the prodigal son who had fallen most low, could still be saved; the bitterest enemy and also he who was your friend could again be your friend; love that has grown cold can kindle.
Express what you have to say, State your requests and questions clear, those which truly matter for you. Then be silent, and listen. You cannot hear any answer, if you keep talking, within and without, asking and replying, all by yourself. Address the Light around you. Express what you have to say, only once, firmly and clear, Then, stop, do not add anything else. Place your hands on your mouth, and keep it close. In the beginning you may feel a bit lost, yet you can rest assured that, in the silence, soon, the Silence will speak to you. (Franco Santoro)
