the entire universe has conspired to create you; in a singular and sacred process, from the atomic furnaces of thousands of suns, matter and energy strewn across the cosmos, birthed from randomness and uncertainty, harmonized by the unconditional love of our mother Earth, manifested from pure possibility into such exquisite beauty, we are stardust, connected to and humbled by the whole of existence; unique, united, and aware!
Elie Wiesel (via lazyyogi)
Rumi (via thecalminside)
there is a women in China holding a black umbrella so she
won’t taste the salt of the rain when the sky begins to weep,
there is a 17 year old girl who smells like pomegranates and has summer air tight on her naked skin, wrapping around her scars
like veins in a bloody garden, who won’t make it past tomorrow,
there is a young man, who buys yellow flowers for the woman
in apartment 84B, who learned braille when he realized she
couldn’t read his poetry about her white neck and mint eyes
there are people watching films,
making love for the first time, opening mail with the
heading of ‘i miss you’, cooking noodles with
organic spices and red sauces, buying lemon detergent,
ignoring ‘do not smoke’ signs, painting murals
of his lips in abandoned warehouses, chewing
the words ‘i love you’ over and over again, swallowing
phone numbers and forgotten birthdays, eating
strawberry pies, drinking white wine off of each
others open mouths, ignoring the telephone,
reading this poem
someone is thinking
someone finally understands
they never really
Egyptian Papyrus Fragment (via panatmansam)
Derek Walcott (via shaktilover)
First realise that your world is only a reflection of yourself and stop finding fault with the reflection.
Attend to yourself,
set yourself right — mentally and emotionally.
Leave alone the reforms and mind the reformer.
Nisargadatta Maharaj (via buddhabums)
Scott Cunningham (via thedruidsteaparty)
