"I believe that each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done. I need to learn how to remember that I believe this when I’m angry. The deeper my wounding the harder it is to remember this and connect with the suffering of my enemy. How shall I learn to see those as I see myself?"

"Things are as they are. Looking out into the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations."

"Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry—all forms of fear—are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence."
Eckhart Tolle (via lazyyogi)

"Life is not permanent. Like the leaves that fall from a tree, all things are impermanent, nothing endures; there is always change and death. Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against a sky, how beautiful it is? All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness there is a poem, there is a song. Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring. When the spring comes it again fills the tree with the music of many leaves, which in due season fall and are blown away; and that is the way of life."
Jiddu Krishnamurti, Think on These Things (via litverve)

"There are three influences which appear to Us to have the chief place in effecting this downgrade movement of society. These are—first, the distaste for a simple and laborious life; secondly, repugnance to suffering of any kind; thirdly, the forgetfulness of the future life."
"Laetitiae Sanctae" (Commending Devotion to the Rosary) by Leo XIII 1893 (via greluc)
