“One day you may catch yourself smiling at the voice in your head, as you would smile at the antics of a child. This means that you no longer take the content of your mind all that seriously, as your sense of self does not depend on it.”—Eckhart Tolle (via yogachocolatelove)
Within you there is peace. Know it, feel it, love it and let it grow.
Throughout you, there is love of life’s beauty and goodness. Keep that love at the front of your awareness, letting it guide your thoughts, perceptions and choices.
Around you, there are possibilities. Life changes with every moment, so pick the possibilities that will enable those changes to uplift your world.
At the heart of you, is a unique and beautiful purpose. In your feelings, your interests, your preferences and passions, that purpose makes itself known, so you can follow it.
Surrounding you, is a universe overflowing with magnificent beauty. Let yourself be positively, joyfully and thankfully amazed at the endless wonder and possibilities.
Flowing through you, is the energy to live, to love, to make a difference and to experience unique fulfillment. Make good and purposeful use of that energy, and make this the most vibrantly rewarding day yet.
“Be present as the watcher of your mind — of your thoughts and emotions as well as your reactions in various situations. Be at least as interested in your reactions as in the situation or person that causes you to react. Notice also how often your attention is in the past or future. Don’t judge or analyze what you observe. Watch the thought, feel the emotion, observe the reaction. Don’t make a personal problem out of them. You will then feel something more powerful than any of those things that you observe: the still, observing presence itself behind the content of your mind, the silent watcher.”—Eckhart Tolle (via illuminatedbeing)
“When you have a choice, choose to put yourself in situations where you can move life forward. Be where you can be inspired, encouraged, enthusiastic and effective. Live your moments in positive places, with positive people, doing things that make a positive difference. Your life is unique and precious, so choose as often as you can to live it in those positive places.”—The Daily Motivator - Positive places (via liliezencoach)
“I’m just sick of ego, ego, ego. My own and everybody else’s. I’m sick of everybody that wants to get somewhere, do something distinguished and all, be somebody interesting. It’s disgusting.”—J.D. Salinger, Franny and Zooey (via spiritd3sire)
“You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination,
call to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting – over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
