Let your intuition emerge from your logical mind’s shadow. We are designed to connect with each other at levels much deeper and more detailed than we can begin to imagine.
—Brian Weiss (via singyoursoulsong)
The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.
—― Alan Wilson Watts (via gangotree)
Be the kind of person you want to be attracted to. You will find that you are less and less drawn to people with difficult character issues and more desirous to find people who are full of grace, safety, acceptance, and a hunger to grow.
—John Townsend (via liberatingreality)
Every breath is a sacrament, an affirmation of our connection with all other living things, a renewal of our link with our ancestors and a contribution to generations yet to come.
—David Suzuki (via purplebuddhaproject)
We need to keep a constant watch over our mind and learn to distinguish between the beneficial and harmful thoughts that are arising moment by moment. Those who are able to do this are truly wise.
—Geshe Kelsang Gyatso - “Eight Steps to Happiness” (via dancingdakini)
Everyone’s making everything up
There is no one in charge except for those
Who pretend to be
No one is coming
No one is going to
Mind read your needs
Know your body better than you
Always fight back.
Ask for it
Say you want it
Cherish your solitude
Take trains by yourself to places
You have never been
Sleep out alone under the stars
Learn how to drive a stick shift
Go so far away that you stop being afraid of
Not coming back.
Say no when you don’t want to do something
Say yes if your instincts are strong
Even if everyone around you disagrees
Decide whether you want to be liked or admired
Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out
What you’re doing here
Believe in kissing.
—Eve Ensler, I am an Emotional Creature (via larmoyante)
