Take pride in how far you have come, and have faith in how far you can go.
Gamble everything for love if you are a true human being. Half-heartedness does not reach into majesty.
You can’t think about presence, and the mind can’t understand it. Understanding presence is being present.
And he loves her. He loves her like he can never grab enough of her between his fingers. And no matter how close he gets, even when they make love, it never feels close enough.
The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into habit;
And the habit hardens into character.
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love,
Born out of concern for all beings.
As the shadow follows the body,
As we think, so we become.
A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life.
Ride the energy of your own unique spirit.

The odds are never in your favour.
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
I can be by myself because I’m never lonely; I am simply alone, living in my heavily populated solitude, a marriage of infinity and eternity. And Infinity and Eternity seem to take a liking to the likes of me.

If you could only keep quiet, clear of memories and expectations, you would be able to discern the beautiful pattern of events. It is your restlessness that causes chaos.
The three saddest things are the ill wanting to be well, the poor wanting to be rich, and the constant traveler saying ‘anywhere but here’.
I think that’s what’s wrong with the world; no one says what they really feel, they always hold it inside. They’re sad, but they don’t cry. They’re happy, but they don’t dance or sing. They’re angry, but they don’t scream. Because if they do, they feel ashamed, and that’s the worst feeling in the world.
So everyone walks with their heads down and no one sees how beautiful the sky is.
