About me..
I like the smell of wood burning, the warm comforting feeling from a holding mug of hot coffee. The taste of dark chocolate, the sight of trees, The sound of laughter, and the feeling of being in harmony with life. ... and collected here are other things I enjoy, I hope you do too!

When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it.

Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once.

—Milarepa (1052-1135, Tibetan Yogi)

The Master, by residing in the Tao,
sets an example for all beings.

Because he doesn’t display himself,
people can see his light.

Because he has nothing to prove,
people can trust his words.

Because he doesn’t know who he is,
people recognize themselves in him.

Because he has no goal in mind,
everything he does succeeds.

—Lao Tzu (via thecalminside)

We think sometimes we’re only drawn to the good, but we’re actually drawn to the authentic. We like people who are real more than those who hide their true selves under layers of artificial niceties.

— Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, (via eleanorlwilston)

Hiding your hurt only intensifies it. Problems grow in the dark and only become bigger and bigger. But when exposed to the light of truth, they shrink. You are only as sick as your secrets. So take off your mask, stop pretending you’re perfect and walk into freedom.

—Rick Warren (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

Remember that there is nothing stable in human affairs; therefore avoid undue elation in prosperity, or undue depression in adversity.
