Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.

Falling back to a level of consciousness below mind, which is the pre-thinking level of our distant ancestors and of animals and plants, is not an option for us. There is no way back. If the human race is to survive, it will have to go on to the next stage.
Eckhart Tolle (via thecalminside)

There are people who are born and die and never once are aware of their breath going in and out of their body. That’s how far away they live from themselves.

Gustav Klimt - Fulfilment, 1905

(Reblogged from inloveipersevere)
I breathe in. I breathe out. I am present in my body. I am here and not anywhere else, knowing there is nowhere else to be. This is meditation. It doesn’t matter how I sit or don’t sit, or how I hold my hands. It is not how still I stay or silencing my mind. Meditation is noticing my body’s posture, whatever form it takes, and noticing how my hands rest if they are resting, their movements if they are in motion. It is following the quiet of each breath. It is stepping back and listening to the music of thoughts, one note at a time, and watching the beauty of cognition. It is opening space with curiosity for observation and observing, across the hush of that space, the dawn and dusk of joy and sorrow, seeing the winter and spring of laughter and tears, seeing and not changing anything. It is gently watching the poetry of life breathing without waking it.

Jesus said: If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.

Certain thoughts that emerge block the love and the light from freely flowing through our beings. Observe carefully.
