Feelings, whether of compassion or irritation, should be welcomed, recognized, and treated on an absolutely equal basis; because both are ourselves. The tangerine I am eating is me. The mustard greens I am planting are me. I plant with all my heart and mind. I clean this teapot with the kind of attention I would have were I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath. Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In mindfulness, compassion, irritation, mustard green plant, and teapot are all sacred.
Get yourself happy, let go of control and allow life to unfold!
We are the universe pretending to be individuals.
—Deepak Chopra (via lazyyogi)
Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength.
—Sigmund Freud (via lazyyogi)
Sometimes it takes a day or a week or a month or longer to get used to how happy you can be. Trust it. Let it grow.
