Birds On The Wire by Faith Alexandra

"Be lit by the fires of life, for they are transformative. Nothing touched by flame ever remains the same."

- Anguis (via cosmic-rebirth)

(via the-door-of-everything)

"First of all, you need to know that an emotion is only that—an emotion—even though it may be a big, strong one. You are so much bigger, so much more than this emotion."

- Thich Nhat Hanh (via thecalminside)

"We don’t give our compassion to such and such a person by choice. We give it spontaneously, entirely, without hoping for anything in exchange."

- Dalai Lama (via thecalminside)

(via ineffable-play)

"Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson (via thecalminside)

"It is emotions that will cloud your decisions, for clarity will only ever exist when we learn acceptance."

- K.Marie Stewart (via childrenofthetao)

"You will always be getting praise and blame, but do not let either affect the poise of the mind: follow the calmness, the absence of pride."

- Buddha (via thecalminside)

"Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson (via thecalminside)

"Someone once asked, “If you could take it all back, would you?”
At the time I didn’t know. Now I do. I wouldn’t take that terrible experience back for anything in the world. Too much light has come out of my darkness."

- Susannah Cahalan, Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness (via quotes-shape-us)

(via ineffable-play)

"Silence is sometimes the best answer."

- Dalai Lama (via thecalminside)

"Brother, stand the pain. Escape the poison of your impulses. The sky will bow to your beauty, if you do. Learn to light the candle. Rise with the sun. Turn away from the cave of your sleeping. That way a thorn expands to a rose."

- Rumi (via thecalminside)

(via the-door-of-everything)

"My story isn’t sweet and harmonious like invented stories. It tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves."

- Hermann Hesse  (via iloverainandcoffee)

"We change the world not by what we say or do, but as a consequence of what we have become."

- David R. Hawkins (via thecalminside)

"What makes you vulnerable makes you beautiful."

- Brené Brown (via unconditionedconsciousness)
