"Too often, people think that solving the world’s problems is based on conquering the earth, rather than touching the earth, touching ground."
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche (via lazyyogi)
"To be beautiful means to be yourself.You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. When you are born a lotus flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be a magnolia flower. If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life. True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself, accepting yourself, having confidence in yourself."
Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)
"Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never met."

"Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all."
"Your soul touched mine, and I think the whole world trembled."
"Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of a pure heart."
"This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play."
"A man is not called wise because he talks and talks again; but if he is peaceful, loving and fearless then he is in truth called wise."
Buddha (via purplebuddhaproject)
