When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.Buddha (via purplebuddhaproject)
I always wonder why we ‘look up’ when searching for God. It’s not like he is ‘up’ there or ‘down’ there but still we search the skies. Sometimes I think it means to signify wanting to be free of the earth and all it’s troubles.
Other times, I wonder if it means something much more rooted but ever more simple. That someone or something is watching us, protecting us, looking over us, and because of this unconscious notion we simply act on instinct; we look upward.
I understood myself only after I destroyed myself.
And only in the process of fixing myself, did I know who I really was.Sade Andria Zabala (via bu-hashem)
We talk about social service, service to the people, service to humanity, service to others who are far away, helping to bring peace to the world - but often we forget that it is the very people around us that we must live for first of all. If you cannot serve your wife or husband or child or parent - how are you going to serve society? If you cannot make your own child happy, how do you expect to be able to make anyone else happy? If all our friends in the peace movement or of service communities of any kind do not love and help each other, whom can we love and help?Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)
