There is no fire like passion, there is no shark like hatred, there is no snare like folly, there is no torrent like greed.
Gautama Buddha (via purplebuddhaproject)
The ultimate meditation is: surrender to reality. The more you fight, the more you are in conflict with it, the more you will be a loser. In deep surrender, the ego disappears. And when the ego is not there, for the first time you become aware of that which has always been there.
Osho (via abiding-in-peace)
One must learn to love, and go through a good deal of suffering to get to it, and the journey is always towards the other soul.
D.H. Lawrence (via purplebuddhaproject)
Note to self: every time you were convinced you couldn’t go on, you did.

Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control. We can love and care for others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family, or friends. We can assist them, pray for them, and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes.

There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.
Mahatma Gandhi (via purplebuddhaproject)


We are not entitled to anything or anyone. The more you accept this, the happier you’ll be. 

Give yourself a break. Just enjoy the day, your normal existence. Just sit. Just be.
Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (via christ-consciousness)
