1. 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)

  2. 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)

  3. 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)

  4. We are all like seasons. We change when it’s time.

  5. 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)

  6. In a room where
    people unanimously maintain
    a conspiracy of silence,
    one word of truth
    sounds like a pistol shot.

    —Czesław Miłosz (via abiding-in-peace)

  7. If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.

    —Amit Ray (via thecalminside)

  8. The words printed here are concepts. You must go through the experiences.

    —Saint Augustine (via beherenowandzen)

  10. 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)

  11. Heaven is this moment.
    Hell is the burning desire
    for this moment to be different.
    It’s that simple.

    —Jeff Foster (via in-a-wonderland-they-lie)

  12. 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
    Rescue you
    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)
