Striking beauty in this conversation with Regina Spektor ... just as one would expect! Massive kudos to the lovely interviewer... Taza!
On performing: "It’s really really really good. [laughs] I don’t know - it feels kind of like a shower or something. Cause it just kind of pours over you in this way, it feels so positive and just, really great. Shows feel like everybody’s going through something together. And then there is this atmosphere that happens or this world that happens and only the people that are there really understand it…"
On what she wants in life: "I guess just all the things that everybody wants: To feel like they’re actually doing something and not just reenacting the same thing over and over, and not getting stuck. Just opening your mind and seeing more of the world and trying to understand how people live and what they think. All that stuff that will sound really fluffy and disgusting if you write it down. Just be part of the world. Really really live…

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final goodbye. "

The Perfect Love

"Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone-
To have a deep soul relationship with another-
To be loved thoroughly, and exclusively.
But God, to a Christian says;
“No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and committed with being loved by Me alone-
With giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me
With having an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone;
Discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found,
Will you be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.
You will never be united with another until you are united with Me-
Exclusively of anyone or anything else,
Exclusive of any other desires or longings.
I want you to stop planning,
Stop wishing,
And allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing
One that you can not imagine.
I want you to have the very best.
Please allow Me to bring it to you.
You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things-
Keep experiencing the satisfact…

Rumi Move Me

Stefanie Nelson/Modern Guest Artists@DNA, originally uploaded by dance_new_amsterdam. Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You're covered with thick clouds.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign
that you've died.
Your old life was a frantic running
from silence.
The speechless full moon
comes out now.

Quietness, by Rumi
Translated by Coleman Barks
