In the end
these things matter most:
How well did you love?
How fully did you live?
How deeply did you let go?
Siddhārtha Gautama Buddha (via wordslessspoken)
Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.
Two statements that will serve you very well. The first is: There will always be war. There will always be those who aggravate within others a sense of trouble in order to promote the solution that they already have their mind made up about. And so you’re never going to come into agreement as a mass consciousness that this is “the way.” There will always be disagreements; therefore, there will always be turmoil; there will always be war. The other statement, that is our favorite is: Well-Being will always abound, so the dominant experience of the majority of people will always be one of Well-Being. So you can decide, at any point in time, in what part of this you want to play. You can use anything as your excuse to align with Well-being, or you can use anything as your excuse to not align. The thing that we think is at the heart of this discussion is my own personal power. We think that’s what you are, sort of, struggling for and reaching for.
When you win, say nothing, when you lose, say less. -Paul Brown
There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no independence quite so important, as living within your means.
You got to be careful if you don’t know where you’re going, because you might not get there.
Deep meditative states are like having multiple orgasms.
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; only by looking back. You have to trust that the dots will connect in your future.
Everyone needs something to aim for. It was challenge that took us from being cavemen to reaching for the stars.
Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place.
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
Listen to the sound of the fire burning in the center of the Earth. It is the same as the beautiful fire you carry inside you.
