"In our former lives, we were trees. Maybe we have even been oak trees ourselves. This isn’t just Buddhist theory, it’s science. The human species is a very young species - we appeared on the Earth only recently. Before that we were rock, we were gas, we were minerals, we were single-celled beings. We were plants, we were trees, and now we have become humans. We have to recall our past existences. This is not difficult. You just sit down and breathe and look, and you can see your past existences."
— Thich Nhat Hanh, Being Peace
"When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow."
— Shauna Niequist
"The heart is a thousand string instrument that can only be tuned with love."
"Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t."
— Steve Maraboli (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
goodnight unnervingly quiet weekend.
