"Buddhism teaches that joy and happiness arise from letting go. Please sit down and take an inventory of your life. There are things you’ve been hanging on to that really are not useful and deprive you of your freedom. Find the courage to let them go."
Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)

Truth hurts. Literally.

I feel as if I’ve strayed from the path.  I have felt this way for quite some time now. And I keep fighting through this swampland of my own mistakes and memories to try and find the path. I keep looking and searching for the path and have tried 100 different ways to locate it. To get “back on track” spiritually. But the truth of it all is this; this swampland - as mucky, dirty, grimy and disgusting as it may be - and as much as I don’t want to be in it - IS actually my path. I’m at the right place at the right time. I choose to let go of fear and regret and trust that at the end of this swampland is a crystal clear stream and a field of beautiful flowers.   Xo

"Even though we work very hard to find happiness, it remains elusive for us, while suffering and problems seem to come naturally, without any effort. Buddha advises us not to seek happiness outside ourself but to establish it within our mind."

"At this moment, is there anything lacking? Nirvana is right here now before our eyes. This place is the lotus land. This body now is the Buddha."
