"Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it"
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
— Jesus Christ, Matthew 25:40
There is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one’s own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels for someone, for someone, pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echos.
Milan Kundera (via panatmansam)
In separateness lies the world’s greatest misery; in compassion lies the world’s true strength.
Buddha (via thecalminside)
If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?
Dogen (via lazyyogi)
A fool sees himself as another. But a wise man sees others as himself.
Dogen (via zenarchism)
Just practice good, do good for others, without thinking of making yourself known so that you may gain reward. Really bring benefit to others, gaining nothing for yourself. This is the primary requisite for breaking free of attachments to the Self.
Dogen (via atopacloud)
People say that what we are seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think this is what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re really seeking is an experience of being alive.
Joseph Campbell (via dishabillic)
