“The first thing is to accept life as it is. Accepting it, desires disappear, tensions disappear, discounted disappears; one starts feeling very joyfull—and for no reason at all.”—Osho (via yogachocolatelove)
“The times when you are suffering can be those when you are most open, and where you are extremely vulnerable can be where your greatest strength really lies.
Say to yourself: “I am not going to run away from this suffering. I want to use it in the best and richest way I can, so that I can become more compassionate and more helpful to others.” Suffering, after all, can teach us about compassion. If you suffer you will know how it is when others suffer. And if you are in a position to help others, it is through your suffering that you will find the understanding and compassion to do so.”—Tibetan Book of Living and Dying (via yogachocolatelove)
“If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.”—C. JoyBell C. (via yogachocolatelove)
“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”—C. JoyBell C. (via yogachocolatelove)
“What good is there to hold on to your emotions? To hold on to guilt, shame, jealousy, fear, anger, happiness? I tell you, it doesn’t benefit you at all, nor, does it brings you peace of mind, only suffering. Emotions are like seasons, they are meant to experience and then let go.”—Marcus Williams (remorphabeing.tumblr.com)
“The heart is always right— if there’s a question of choosing between the mind and the heart— because mind is a creation of the society. It has been educated. You have been given it by the society, not by existence. The heart is unpolluted.”—Osho (via emilyanneblogs)
