Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.

Franz Kafka (via 13thmoon)

Biggest Change in Life: Work = Play

When listening to another person,
don’t just listen with your mind,
listen with your whole body.
Feel the energy field of your inner body as you listen.
That takes attention away from thinking
and creates a still space that enables you
to truly listen without the mind interfering.
You are giving the other person space - space to be.
It is the most precious gift you can give.
Eckhart Tolle (via anythingispossiblehere)

(via inmymountainofdreams)

The problem of humanity is deeply rooted in the mind itself.
Eckhart Tolle
I had to set up a barrage of self-protecting lies. I needed to protect my real self from people; they not only betrayed me but also distorted my personality. And now you, you give me strength. You are calm and strong, and really know me. You don’t need experience. You were born knowing. Knowing the world, knowing the biggest parts of me. You have all I need; an understanding without need of facts, realities. I have done the vilest things, foulest things, but I have done them superbly, and I feel I have passed through them, I feel intact, I feel innocent. You understand that. You have an intuition. What does it matter what I do, it is what I am that matters.
Anaïs Nin, from The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934 (via violentwavesofemotion)

Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do.
Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.
Ella Fitzgerald  (via seasonschangethewaythatweare)

Most people do not listen with the intent to understand;
they listen with the intent to reply.
