"Not all those who wander are lost."~ J.R.R. Tolkien


In most of our human relationships, we spend much of our time reassuring one another that our costumes of identity are on straight.

your creative power


If you test your creative power on this level, the statement: “Whatsoever you desire, believe you have received it and you will,” will no longer be a great theory given lip service, but will be known from experience.
Believe you are the man (or woman) you want to be. Catch the feeling that you…

Prayer begins by talking to God, but it ends by listening.

Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (via confessionsofsomeoneanonymous)

Don’t talk to yourself in such a way that if you did so to a friend, it would end your friendship.

If you had a friend dealing with the same things, you wouldn’t berate that person, say, ‘You’re not working hard enough,’ ‘You suck,’ or ‘You’re not as good as [whomever].’ You’d offer your friend encouragement, you’d try to point out all the things your friend did right, and how much progress your friend had made.

You should do no less for yourself.

Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening.

Remember you don’t meditate to get anything, but to get rid of things. We do it, not with desire, but with letting go. If you want anything, you won’t find it. You won’t be able to find it. But when your heart is ready, peace will come looking for you.

Ajahn Chan (via tobiji)

We limit ourselves when we adopt specific identities and then believe that this is truly who we are and must be.

H.H. the Karmapa (via poundtheroad)

Inside us there is a word
we cannot pronounce
and that is who we are.

Anthony Marra (via live-lee)
