“Acceptance is not passivity. It is full alignment with life; the birth of creativity, and love.” — Jeff Foster (via abiding-in-peace)

“Wherever you are, you are one with the clouds and one with the sun and the stars you see. You are one with everything. That is more true than I can say, and more true than you can hear.” — Shunryu Suzuki (via thecalminside)

“Zen masters use the word satori to describe a flash of insight, a moment of no-mind and total presence. Although satori is not a lasting transformation, be grateful when it comes, for it gives you a taste of enlightenment.” — Eckhart Tolle (via thecalminside)

For the first time


When the compulsive story telling stops,
and twitches of like and don’t like fade,
even for a second

you will see that you are here
for the first time ever.

No one has been here before you, no one.

You are the first to look out over this miracle;
the first twinkle of awareness
shining here in wonder and astonishment

And there is no you doing any gazing:

this is the Universe seeing Herself
over and over again for the first time

completely awe struck at her own infinite splendour.

“One must bear in mind the odd angle or slant that the rays of love have to take in order to reach a heart like mine.” — Saul Bellow, Humboldt’s Gift (via creatingaquietmind)

(via dailymindfulness)

“Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the plowshare of self–examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring, and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird; keep a place in your heart for the unexpected guests, an altar for the unknown God. Then if a bird sings among your branches, do not be too eager to tame it. If you are conscious of something new – thought or feeling, wakening in the depths of your being – do not be in a hurry to let in light upon it, to look at it; let the springing germ have the protection of being forgotten, hedge it round with quiet, and do not break in upon its darkness; let it take shape and grow, and not a word of your happiness to any one! Sacred work of nature as it is, all conception should be enwrapped by the triple veil of modesty, silence and night.” — Henri–Frédéric Amiel (via itsquoted)

“The only meaningful thing we can offer one another is love. Not advice, not questions about our choices, not suggestions for the future, just love.” — Glennon Melton, Carry On, Warrior  (via we-are-all-1-love)
