Eugene is a Singaporean millennial who writes when he needs to. He used to write out of a psychological need: A rampant mind and an anxious gut both need emptying. He now writes with a spiritual need: To constantly rewrite his self – and thus his life.

He also labels himself as Socio Empath. Not that he is a Sociology professor or a walking sponge, but because he fears becoming a sociopath. The label is his note to self to keep an open mind and an open heart, and share both with his readers.

Eugene JL Lim hasn't written any blog posts yet.

“You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds
Except the one in which you belong.”

David Whyte
“We can never know in the beginning, in giving ourselves to a person, to a work, to a marriage or to a cause, exactly what kind of love we are involved with. When we demand a certain specific kind of reciprocation before the revelation has flowered completely we find our selves disappointed and bereaved and in that grief may miss the particular form of love that is actually possible but that did not meet our initial and too specific expectations. Feeling bereft we take our identity as one who is disappointed in love, our almost proud disappointment preventing us from seeing the lack of reciprocation from the person or the situation as simply a difficult invitation into a deeper and as yet unrecognizable form of affection.

The act of loving itself, always becomes a path of humble apprenticeship, not only in following its difficult way and discovering its different forms of humility and beautiful abasement but strangely, through its fierce introduction to all its many astonishing and different forms, where we are asked continually and against our will, to give in so many different ways, without knowing exactly, or in what way, when or how, the mysterious gift will be returned.”
David Whyte

David Whyte
“When your eyes are tired the world is tired also. When your vision has gone no part of the world can find you. Time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognize its own. There you can be sure you are not beyond love. The dark will be your womb tonight. The night will give you a horizon further than you can see. You must learn one thing. The world was made to be free in. Give up on all other worlds except the one to which you belong. Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you. ”
David Whyte
