It has nothing to do with effort. Just turn away, look between the thoughts, rather than at the thoughts. When you happen to walk in a crowd, you do not fight every man you meet, you just find your way between. When you fight, you invite a fight. But when you do not resist, you meet no resistance. When you refuse to play the game, you are out of it.
— Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (via thecalminside)
Stay mad, but behave like normal people. Run the risk of being different, but learn to do so without attracting attention.
— Paulo Coelho (via purplebuddhaproject)
