No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.Nelson Mandela (via sincerelymona)
You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life.Krishnamurti (via merryprankster)
Life is not somewhere waiting for you, it is happening in you. It is not in the future as a goal to be arrived at, it is herenow, this very moment — in your breathing, circulating in your blood, beating in your heart. Whatsoever you are is your life, and if you start seeking meaning somewhere else, you will miss it. Man has done that for centuries.Osho (via moreofamore)
Do not believe anything
because it is said by an authority,
or if it is said to come from angels,
or from gods,
or from an inspired source.
Believe it only if you have explored it
in your own heart
and mind and body
and found it to be true.
Work out your own path,
~ Gautama Buddha
There is a silence in you.Mooji (via oceanandwave)
It is always here, constant and unmovable.
It is not doing anything.
Be aware of this.
It is simply here but it didn’t arrive.
You are not a person here.
In the silence itself, you are without history, name and form.
Recognise that space here now which simply is.
It underlies all activity,
but itself does not participate in any activity.
Notice and confirm this now,
and stay in your beautiful rest.
Well, I never thought I’d get done with this crazy exam stuff, but I’m done for a few days until next wednesday. Now I can chill some and focus more on my positive thinking stuff. I said my morning prayer this morning. I monitored my thoughts a little, but not much. But I’ve been in a generally good mood lately, so not a problem. I’m looking forward to this weekend! It will be really fun :) Much love y’all!
