While we are sitting in meditation, we are simply exploring humanity and all of creation in the form of ourselves. We can become the world’s greatest experts on anger, jealousy, and self-deprecation, as well as on joyfulness, clarity, and insight. Everything that human beings feel, we feel. We can become extremely wise and sensitive to all of humanity and the whole universe simply by knowing ourselves, just as we are.Pema Chodron (via lazyyogi)
The magic begins in you. Feel your own energy, and realize similar energy exists within the Earth, stones, plants, water, wind, fire, colors, and animals.Scott Cunningham (via merryprankster)
Conditioning your happiness on other people or any external thing is attachment and will lead to suffering.
We all go through life like bulls in a china shop. A chip here, a crack there. Doing damage to ourselves, to other people. The problem is trying to control the damage we’ve done, or that’s been done to us.Grey’s Anatomy (via iamcharliesangel)
I don’t want to sit around and hope good things will happen. I want to make them happen….I want to be in control of my own destiny.Drew Barrymore (via iamcharliesangel)
The feeling of fear is never going to go away completely … When you feel fear, keep going forward … You are not a coward if you feel fear. You are only a coward if you give into that feeling … You can learn to do it afraid.Joyce Meyer (via iamcharliesangel)
Don’t change so that people will like you. Be the real you and the right people will love you. Don’t give up yourself - and stoop to be a counterfeit.(via iamcharliesangel)
