We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically…Not only are we in the universe, the universe is in us.Neil deGrasse Tyson. Astrophysicist (via purplebuddhaproject)
i want a relationship but i want them to be like a friend to me, i dont want the relationship to be all about kissing, making out and sex i just wanna hang out with them, and go places, and just have fun wherever we go
This post is surreal because that is exactly how a healthy relationship should be yet we’re convinced this is a weird and unusual thing to ask of our partners.
The difference between love and infatuation/lust.
To dwell in the here and now does not mean you never think about the past or responsibly plan for the future. The idea is simply not to allow yourself to get lost in regrets about the past or worries about the future. If you are firmly grounded in the present moment, the past can be an object of inquiry, the object of your mindfulness and concentration. You can attain many insights by looking into the past. But you are still grounded in the present moment.Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)
Do you ever catch yourself thinking rude things about someone or judging them and you’re like “hey stop that, that’s not nice don’t u do that”
Yes. And I think it means we need to spend less time with judgmental people, and/pr that we need to spend less time watching TV, listening to the radio, reading yourtube comments, etc. I think we need to avoid judgmental influences as much as we can. We tend to pick up the habits of those we spend time with, so it is important to spend time with people whose habits we actually want to develop more in ourselves.
You can’t litter negativity everywhere then wonder why you have a trashy life.(via achamber)
With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.Wayne Dyer (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
