“Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.”—Norman Vincent Peale (via nirvikalpa)
“See the fullness of life all around you. The warmth of the sun on your skin, the display of magnificent flowers outside a florist’s shop, biting into a succulent fruit, or getting soaked in an abundance of water falling from the sky. The fullness of life is there at every step.
The acknowledgment of that abundance that is all around you awakens the dormant abundance within. Then let it flow out. When you smile at a stranger, there is already a minute outflow of energy. You become a giver.”—Eckhart Tolle (via nirvikalpa)
“Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice has prevented me from feelings of isolation.”—Albert Einstein (via silentnostalgia)
“Do you think magic mushrooms growing atop cow shit was an accident? Where do you think the phrase ‘that’s good shit!’ came from? Why do you think Hindu’s think cows are holy? Holy shit!”—Bill Hicks (via moreofamore)
“Don’t condemn sensuality. It has been condemned by the whole world, and because of their condemnation, the energy that can flower in sensuality moves into perversions, jealousy, anger, hatred — a kind of life which is dry, with no juice. Sensuousness is one of the greatest blessings to humanity. It is your sensitivity, it is your consciousness. Consciousness filtering through the body is what sensousness is.”—Osho (via nirvikalpa)
“It is your right to be happy and yet you create your own un-happiness by wanting things. Wanting is the source of per-petual restlessness. If you do not get the thing you wanted, you are disappointed. And if you get, you want more and more of it and become unhappy.”—Meher Baba (via nirvikalpa)
“All humans are essentially wild creatures and hate confinement. We need what is wild, and we thrill to it, our wildness bubbling over with an anarchic joie de vivre. We glint when the wild light shines. The more suffocatingly enclosed we are - tamed by television, controlled by mortgages and bureaucracy - the louder our wild genes scream in aggression, anger and depression.”—Jay Griffiths (via slychedelic)
