    oh, ya know...just a bunch of rumi quotes.

    “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
    ― Rumi

    “Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”
    ― Rumi

    “Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.”
    ― Rumi

    “The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
    Don't go back to sleep!
    You must ask for what you really want.
    Don't go back to sleep!
    People are going back and forth
    across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
    The door is round and open
    Don't go back to sleep!”
    ― Rumi

    “Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.”
    -Rumi

    “But listen to me. For one moment
    quit being sad. Hear blessings
    dropping their blossoms
    around you.”
    ― Rumi

    “Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”
    ― Rumi
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Counting every minute till the feeling comes crashing down
    Run when it hits the ground, I'm good at escaping
    But better at flaking out


    *heavy sigh*

    Once again you seem completely oblivious of the fact you are/were putting-forth something extraordinarily relevant... something forgotten that must be seen again...

    My memory has not served me well lately. Dave Grohl, a constant in my life, not yet having been mentioned in this thread is astounding to me...and evidence of my clear and present insanity. Massive, unspeakable quantities of ginkgo biloba - here I come.

    (excuse me for one brief moment Dr.)



    -------------------------------------------------
    @Chanaynay Dave Grohl is a near perfect example of an ENFP 7w6 so/sx perfectionist w/ *smooth presentation* (perfectionism, anxiousness are latent.) Have a look see...

    ^^I might need to quote this again in a fresh window because I'm now unbelievably interested in how the individual 7s here handle romantic circumstances...

    I consider myself an individual that runs towards interesting people and away from relationships. I mean, I'm wired to run towards relationships and away from pain which creates a strange push-pull I imagine. But as an sx dom I take relationships so seriously...and while I am quite certain it doesn't show in my outward behavior beyond just being there...I still am entirely invested with my soul...my heart will be...entirely devoted. Knowing what kind of pain I'm potentially setting myself up for I'll most definitely do the "gone in sixty-seconds" if I feel the person will bring me heartache and harm with their actions and treatment of me (I have since gotten over the heartache of my last relationship...and yet I still get mad at myself for not having seen in him...or known via what should be a mandated public service announcement... the dangers of turning your heart over to fuckin-crazy Ni>Fe>Ti.) So, because of the extreme seriousness of it all...I've never personally used relationships as a form of escapism... But day dreaming of some amazingly awesome and hot dude has caused me to avoid many of Life's more unpleasant realities and for this I'm quite grateful haha (<-that's a joke MQ.)

    7 sx will use actual *romance* as well as literature, day dreams, fantasy as escapism

    7 sp will feed their hearty appetites with food, sex, luxuries as escapism

    7 so it's these guys I worry most about when it comes to actual running in and out of relationships. They seem to have a more difficult time feeding the beast...quieting the 7 beast...and so they just keep on running. Dave Grohl's running has worked for him...but I could still see long before I even knew what enneagram was that he was running...and that his running looked "identical just better rewarded" than my ENFP 7w6 so/sx bestie.




    All my life I've been searching for something
    Something never comes never leads to nothing
    Nothing satisfies but I'm getting close
    Closer to the prize at the end of the rope

    And I'm done, done and I'm on to the next one...

    I skipped through the video, I related to what he said such as the "let us be a band" stuff and his general style of talking about things. The only difference is that I'm a little more sloppy and take a longer time to get my thoughts in order so I ramble on a lot more. So I'm not sure how that relates to me being so/sx vs sx/so haha. Would you mind explaining?

    I absolutely love these *fives*
    Please keep more coming when you think of it.
    When I think of 7s I always think of how perfect profound quotes are for them.


    Here's a possibly less healthy message by Rumi I remembered the other day haha... (still love it though and frankly "health" will always be a relative term.)


    Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy,
    absentminded. Someone sober
    will worry about things going badly.
    Let the lover be.


    ^I always thought I should know this person or a person with this philosophy...
    thank you so much

    To me writing isn't only about how you string words and subsequently sentences, paragraphs and pages together...
    Writing is just as much what you choose to say...and I see a lot of power and impact in what you choose to say. Basically, I meant every word I said
    Thank you madam.

    I saw the Foo Fighters live and he climbed up the stage rigging, probably 50 feet and continued to play.

    Never seen that before.
