How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
—Winnie the Pooh (via psych-facts)
Have a mind that is open to everything, and attached to nothing.
— Tilopa (via psych-facts)
I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.
Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.
— Simone Weil (via psych-facts)
Detach from needing to have things work out a certain way. The Universe is perfect and there are no failures. Give yourself the gift of detaching from your worries and trust that everything is happening
—Orin (via psych-facts)
People use drugs, legal and illegal, because their lives are intolerably painful or dull. They hate their work and find no rest in their leisure. They are estranged from their families and their neighbors. It should tell us something that in healthy societies drug use is celebrative, convivial, and occasional, whereas among us it is lonely, shameful, and addictive. We need drugs, apparently, because we have lost each other.
—― Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays
