"You could probably boil down
all your psychological suffering
I WANT TO CONTROL THIS MOMENT
BUT I CAN’T!"
— Jeff Foster (via abiding-in-peace)
"We only suffer when we oppose the truth.
There is a little voice inside your head that sometimes shouts at you, saying, ‘It shouldn’t be like this!’
Don’t listen. Your life must not be about what should or shouldn’t be. It must be about acceptance to the moment, and then a response from the heart, whatever that response is!
Our unhappiness only arises when we don’t get what we want. That’s all."
— Michael Kewley (via abiding-in-peace)
"Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns it calls me on and on across the universe."
— John Lennon (via i-am-ascension)
"When we are mindful, deeply in touch with the present moment, our understanding of what is going on deepens, and we begin to be filled with acceptance, joy, peace and love."
— Thích Nhất Hạnh (via elige)

"Meditation doesn’t change life. Life remains as fragile and unpredictable as ever. Meditation changes the heart’s capacity to accept life as it is. It teaches the heart to be more accommodating; not by beating it into submission, but by making it clear that accommodation is a gratifying choice"
— Sylvia Boorstein (via belovedlotus)
