"There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don’t you?"

1. Cut your hair every now and then. Fresh starts are always nicer than you think. Who needs split ends anyways.

2. Pick a song you really like. Listen to that song a lot. And I mean a lot. Dance around your room naked to that song, beat the song lifeless till it annoys the hell out of you. Then pick a new song and go through the same process. We all need to really hear music, we need to understand what the song we are listening to is really about.

3. Paint your toes black, make it as perfect as possible. Then, scratch it off. Remember nothing is permanent.

4. Go on a run with your dog. Try to race him and beat him. Realize you can out run many things. Then go back and pet your dog, realize that some things you need to go back for.

5. Decorate a plain backpack. Glue on sparkles, glitter, diamonds, newspaper and magazine clippings, lace & ribbon, anything else that may fancy you. Remember, you don’t have to be the same person you were a minute ago.

6. Buy some pretty lights and string them up in your room. Turn off all the lights except for one when you go to bed. Remember it isn’t always dark and lonely. Change your perspective.

7. Lay outside one night. Breathe in breathe out. Accept that you are only one person and cannot do everything at one time. You can take your time. The creator of the stars you’re looking up at did not do it all in one day. Pace yourself.

8. Get up every morning and stand in front of the mirror. Naked, fully clothed, backwards, upside down, who cares how, just do it. Observe yourself. Notice the wrinkles under your eyes from laughing a lot. Count your freckles. Admire your ass. Then name 3 things you love about yourself. You need to love yourself.

"Our God is consistent, but He is also unpredictable. You never know what He’s going to do next, you always know what He’s like, but you never know what He’ll do next. God has called you to see the invisible and do the impossible. God has not called you to do the things you can do, but He’s called you to do the things you’ll never be able to do in a million years. You’re not able to do what God has called you to do—only He can do it—but He’s called you to live in His faithfulness, in His consistency, that He will come and do all the things that need to be done. So beloved, you cannot find security in what God is doing because God commits you to the impossible, He asks you to see the invisible, He calls you to do the outrageous: there’s no security in that place, there’s no security in what God is doing; there’s only security in who God is. This great God will throw us into situations beyond us with no other thought than His great heart will sustain us."

"I can’t stand moral absolutism. You know, there’s always that guy who wants to point out that Martin Luther King cheated on his wife— as if he obviously couldn’t have been a great person if he did something like that. Or someone will bring out an inspirational quote, and get you to agree, and then inform you that Hitler said it. As if a good thought couldn’t come from Hitler. Moral absolutism keeps us from learning from the past. It’s easy to say: ‘Hitler was a demon. Nazis were all bad seeds.’ That’s simple. It’s much harder to say: ‘Is that humanity? Is that me?’"

Avada Kedavra’ or the killing curse has been taken from the Armaic phrase “avra kehdabra” meaning ‘I will create as I speak’. Although J.K.Rowling has combined it with the latin ‘cadavra’ meaning dead bodies.

So Avada Kedavra stands for “I will create dead bodies as I speak

And I thought it was a play on abracadabra

This is a bit of a simplification. Of course “avada cadavra” is a play on “abracadabra” but it’s also pointing out that abracadabra has origins that are mysterious and amazing and wonderful.

The aramaic Avra kehdabra is one of many possible explanations for where the word “abracadabra” comes from. Cooler, for me, is that avra kehdabra actually translates to something more like “I create like the word” not “I create as I speak.”

This might make it sound more nonsensical, but the way one creates with symbology (including words) is often traditionally discussed as if it is magical. When I say a word, giraffe, let’s say, I create a giraffe in your mind. This ability…the ability to create with words is arguably the thing that sets humans apart from other animals. To “create like the word” could be seen as a very magical thing indeed. To bring something into existence that was not there before.

And the primary magic of JK Rowling, of course, is to make things real with words.

Connecting deeply with languages old and new through spells and character names is one of the many things that gives Harry Potter a lot more depth than most give it credit for.

"

The crickets have been
trying to warn us about the
monsters in the woods,
but we dismiss their voices
before we even try to make
sense of the languages they sing in.

We treat each other the same way.

"If you walk on sunlight, bathe in moonlight, breathe in a golden air and exhale a Midas’ touch; mark my words, those who exist in the shadows will try to pull you into the darkness with them. The last thing that they want is for you to see the wonder of your life because they can’t see theirs."

"I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing."
