1. "When you rest in quietness and your image of yourself fades, and your image of the world fades, and your ideas of others fade, what’s left? A brightness, a radiant emptiness that is simply what you are."
    Adyashanti (via lazyyogi)
  2. "The body cannot be separated from the mind, nor can the mind be separated from the soul. No one can define the boundaries between them. In India, asana was never considered to be merely physical as it is in the west."

    B.K.S. Iyengar

    The Tree of Yoga (P. 46)

  3. "Many of you may say that performing an asana is a physical discipline, but if you speak in that way without knowing the depth of asana, you have already fallen from the grace of yoga."

    B.K.S. Iyengar

    The Tree of Yoga (P. 46)

  4. "All men are in need of help and depend on one another. Human solidarity is the necessary condition for the unfolding of any one individual."
    Erich Fromm (via itsquoted)
  5. "In harmony with the Tao, the sky is clear and spacious, the earth is solid and full, all creatures flourish together, content with the way they are, endlessly repeating themselves, endlessly renewed."
    Lao Tzu (via thecalminside)
  6. "All your seriousness is about sandcastles. And you yourself will leave them one day, trampling them down, and you will not look back. The people who take it seriously miss the beauty of playfulness."
    Osho (via ladyjungle)

  8. "Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all."

  9. "The heart can think of no devotion
    Greater than being shore to the ocean-
    Holding the curve of one position,
    Counting an endless repetition."
    Robert Frost (via observando)

  10. "When there is no desire, all things are at peace."
