Neptune in 2nd House
~ Realizing really late that one’s ego actually possesses a peculiarity called “standards of living,” and that, despite one’s spiritual inclinations towards abnegation and non-attachment, the standards of living definitely affects one’s potential for enjoyment in life, depending upon their fulfillment. ~
Leila had been taught all her life that, life is all about being sent to school to squirm in the seat and be tortured with tests, homework, a ton of bricks in her backpack, after which one can finally advance to a prisoner’s hot seat in an adult setting, which is called a “job,” except this time, the lesson is all about your real job and other people’s nosiness, and the homework mainly involves recovering from headaches, and you’re also carrying your families’ and friends’ burdens, if you are so inclined.

But, you know, girl, you’ve got to put your feet on the ground, because you’re the only one in your circle who thinks that way. The wolves are out to eat you. The pink candy in your eyes and your marshmallow heart is their license to cheat.

Paradise feels just nice: everything flows smoothly, and there is no ugliness, we only have peace here.
