You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge.
Eckhart Tolle (via purplebuddhaproject)
For just one second, look at your life and see how perfect it is. Stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. Stop waiting. This is it: there’s nothing else. It’s here, and you’d better decide to enjoy it or you’re going to be miserable wherever you go, for the rest of your life, forever.
Lev Grossman (via purplebuddhaproject)
I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.

If it doesn’t effect your soul, don’t let it bother your mind.

We’re so busy watching out for what’s just ahead of us that we don’t take time to enjoy where we are.
