Thank you, artemisdreaming.
“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
– Mary Oliver (via onceuponawildflower)
“In meditation you take an unbiased approach. You let things be as they are, without judgement, and in that way you yourself learn to be.”
– Chogyam trungpa rinpoche
“Accepting our kinship with all life on earth is not only science, it’s also a soaring, spiritual experience.”
– Neil deGrasse Tyson (via galaxyclusters)
“Once you realize that the road is the goal and that you are always on the road, not to reach a goal, but to enjoy its beauty and its wisdom, life ceases to be a task and becomes natural and simple, in itself an ecstasy.”
– Nisargadatta Maharaj (via thebigelectron)
