When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love
Eventually you will come to understand that love heals everything, and love is all there is.
You are the source
Of all purity and impurity.
No one purifies another.
The person who is hardest to forgive is the one who can teach you the greatest lessons.
Louise L. Hay (via yunzi)
There is no separate art of life. If you know how to allow poetry, if you know how to allow dance, if you know how to allow love — if you know how to ALLOW, then you know the art of life. In the allowing, in the let-go, in the surrender, is the art of life. How not to be and to let God be — that is the only art of life.
To be happy is to be whole.
