"When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky” Buddha ☺️

One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.

The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.

"The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will blossom like flowers." - Thich Nhat Hanh (via culturejolt)
Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person. To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think.

People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong.
Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?
- Thich Nhat Hanh (via culturejolt)
It is possible to live twenty-four hours a day in a state of love. Every movement, every glance, every thought, and every word can be infused with love.

It is easy enough to be friendly to one’s friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.
