Let go of your earthly tether. Enter the void, empty, and become wind.
Is the rejection of something you know nothing about
Yet refuse to investigate.
(Dr. Wayne Dyer)
Zen is to have the heart and soul of a little child.
Takuan (via panatmansam)
Abandoning all selfish desires,
a person moves through life
free from worldly longings,
Without the sense of ‘mine’,
without the notion
of ‘I am acting’—
that one attains peace.
The Bhagavad Gita (via as-effervescent-as-i)
Should even one’s enemy arrive at the doorstep, they should be attended upon with respect. A tree does not withdraw its cooling shade even from the one who has come to cut it.
Mahabharata 12.146.5 (via brahmaanda)
The lotus is a flower that grows in the mud. The thicker and deeper the mud, the more beautiful the lotus blooms.
Buddhist chant (via d0ntkillmygoodvibes)
Our Dhamma path must be a path without ambition, unless that ambition is to be free from the causes of our unhappiness.
Michael Kewley - No ambition
May all beings be happy.
When they think that they know the answers, people are difficult to guide.
When they know that they don’t know,
people can find their own way
Lao Tzu (via thecalminside)
The foundation of mental illness is our unwillingness to experience legitimate suffering.
Carl Gustav Jung (via panatmansam)
