Holding on to anything is like holding on to your breath. You will suffocate. The only way to get anything in the physical universe is by letting go of it. Let go & it will be yours forever.Deepak Chopra (via purplebuddhaproject)
Every day, think as you wake up, ‘Today I am fortunate to be alive. I have a precious human life. I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.’Dalai Lama (via shaktilover)
Go on pondering, wondering, being anxious to find a way. Be conscious of yourself, watch your mind, give it your full attention.
Don’t look for quick results; there may be none within your noticing. Unknown to you, your psyche will undergo a change. There will be more clarity in your thinking, charity in your feeling, purity in your behavior.
You need not aim at these — you will witness the change all the same. For what you are now is the result of inattention and what you become will be the fruit of attention.Nisargadatta (via oceanandwave)
