I miss perverts in the real world, I miss seeing them. They’re all just online now.
I feel so intensely the delights of shutting oneself up in a little world of one’s own, with pictures and music and everything beautiful.
All the hardest, coldest people you meet were once as soft as water. And that’s the tragedy of living.
Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist.
Your real nature is one perfect, free, and actionless consciousness, the all-pervading, unattached to anything, desireless, at peace. It appears through illusion as the world. Knowing that all this is an illusion, one becomes free from desire, pure receptivity and at peace, as if nothing existed.
Ashtavakra Gita (via nirvikalpa)
Suddenly you’re ripped into being alive. And life is pain, and life is suffering, and life is horror, but my god you’re alive and it’s spectacular.
Inside, we are ageless and when we talk to ourselves, it’s the same age of the person we were talking to when we were little. It’s the body that is changing around that ageless centre.
The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.. ― John Milton, Paradise Lost
People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.
Nothing haunts us like the things we don’t say.
My alone feels so good, I’ll only have you if you’re sweeter than my solitude.
If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.
Everyone tells you what to do and what’s good for you. They don’t want you to find your own answers. They want you to believe theirs.
Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior (via olliesoi)
Sometimes, very quietly and graciously, you can inspire other people by showing them that there’s a different way and many perceptions of beauty. You may not be feeling it inside, but if you display it like you mean it, then it can give permission to be kind to ourselves and embrace our individuality.
