Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.
When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
— Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements (via elige)
As long as you perceive that anyone is holding you back, you have not taken full responsibility for your own liberation. Liberation means that you stand free of making demands on others and on life to make you happy. When you discover yourself to be nothing but Freedom you stop setting up conditions and requirements that need to be satisfied in order for you to be happy. It is in the absolute surrender of all conditions and requirements that Liberation is discovered to be who and what you Are. Then the love and wisdom that flow out of you have a liberating effect on others.
— Adyashanti (via ashramof1)
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
— Aristotle (via observando)
Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.
— The Dalai Lama (via lazyyogi)
