“The less I needed, the better I felt.”

Charles Bukowski



“Eckhart saw Hell too. He said: The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won’t let go of life, your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away. But they’re not punishing you, he said. They’re freeing your soul. So, if you’re frightened of dying and… and you’re holding on, you’ll see devils tearing your life away. But if you’ve made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth.”

Louis, Jacob’s Ladder



“Live in joy, In love, Even among those who hate. Live in joy, In health, Even among the afflicted. Live in joy, In peace, Even among the troubled. Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, Know the sweet joy of the way.”

The Dhammapada



“People are really attractive when they don’t need you.”

Christine Dao



The mind’s original nature is like space; 
It pervades and embraces all things under the sun. 
Be still and stay relaxed in genuine ease, 
Be quiet and let sound reverberate as an echo, 
Keep your mind silent and watch the ending of all worlds.
Tilopa, Mahamudra Instructions to Naropa

“Neither grasp nor push away.”

The Middle Way



“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

1 Corinthians 13:4



“Love is not what you want, it is what you are. It is very important to not get these two confused. If you think that love is what you want, you will go searching for it all over the place. If you think love is what you are, you will go sharing it all over the place. The second approach will cause you to find what the searching will never reveal.”

Neale Donald Walsch



“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts.”

Marianne Williamson



“Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what.”



“Life is suffering.”

The Buddha



“Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken.”

Albert Camus
