When we walk like (we are rushing), we print anxiety and sorrow on the earth. We have to walk in a way that we only print peace and serenity on the earth… Be aware of the contact between your feet and the earth. Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.
Thich Nhat Hanh (via purplebuddhaproject)
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
Rumi (via purplebuddhaproject)
The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.
Carl Sagan, Cosmos (via feellng)
Intimacy begins with
the courage to listen to yourself.
The willingness to
see, feel, express who you are
"Notes on intimacy: Into-me-I-see" by India Ame’ye (via buddhabrot)
The greatest acceptance is to accept yourself as you are right now, and not for who you want to be. To accept others for who they are, not for who you want them to be. To accept Life as it is this moment, not for what you want it to be. By releasing your expectations about how you want outer circumstances to be, you bring an inner acceptance to what appears and your state of peace remains unshakable regardless of how life appears. This is love without conditions. Experiencing your self as life unfolding, participating and being.
