So easy to hate and hurt, so rewarding to live and to love.
Everybody teaches you some lesson or the other, learn from everybody. The world is filled with teachers, you just have to be a good student.
The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.
The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.
The basic principle of spiritual life is that our problems become the very place to discover wisdom and love.
The world doesn’t belong to us, we belong to it. Always have, always will. We belong to the world. We belong to the community of life on this planet – it doesn’t belong to us. We got confused about that, now it’s time to set the record straight
Through meditation you learn that you don’t have to protect, you don’t have to defend, you don’t have to make your point, you don’t have to win, you don’t have to lose…you just interact, you communicate with situations as they arise.
Who are you in the silence between your thoughts?
Gil Fronsdal (via zeggy)
Practice is like raising a duck. If it grows fast or slow, it’s the duck’s business not yours. Let go & just do your own work. ~ Ajahn Chah
And sometimes I have kept my feelings to myself, because I could find no language to describe them in.
