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!

 

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.

Elie Wiesel (via lazyyogi)

somewhere
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

somewhere
someone is thinking
i’m alone
somewhere
someone finally understands
they never really
were

Hear me O’ scribes and hear me men of wisdom. Routine and prejudice distort vision. Each man thinks his own horizon is the limit of the world so let thy mind be limitless and thy vision be undimmed.

I am part of the sun as my eye is of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea.

The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the other’s welcome.

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)

We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.

Anaïs Nin   (via corvidae-and-crossroads)

Trees have from time immemorial been closely associated with magic.
These stout members of the vegetable kingdom may stand for as long
as a thousand years, and tower far above our mortal heads. As such
they are symbols and keepers of unlimited power, longevity, and
timelessness. An untouched forest, studded with trees of all ages,
sizes and types, is more than a mysterious, magical place - it is one
of the energy reservoirs of nature. Within its boundaries stand
ancient and new sentinels, guardians of the universal force
which has manifested on the the Earth
