O mind, my friend, what’s the good of so much speaking?

O mind, my friend, all of this has been made quite clear.

I’ve told you what I know to be true;

You’re the ultimate Reality.

You’re unbounded, like space.

– From The Song of Avadhut

It’s better having one true friend than having false relatives.

Good things happen when you distance yourself from negative people.

Do not let people’s opinions of you mold your destiny.
Let unhappy people have their unhappy thoughts.
Continue on your path courageously.

— Haemin Sunim

The only evil is inattention. It is the father of stupidity and the grandfather of the twins, suffering and sorrow.

— Wu Hsin


We should be lifting each other up
And cheering each other on
Not trying to outshine one another.
The sky would be awfully dark with just one star.


“It is in the present moment that life, peace, joy, happiness, and well-being are possible.”
— Thich Nhat Hanh

“Everything is changing. Whatever you pass, don’t cling to it. Eventually the mind will reach its natural balance where practice is automatic. All things will come and go of themselves.”
― Ajahn Chah

“To the degree that you condemn and find evil in others, you are to that degree unconscious of the same thing in yourself.”
— Alan Watts

little things that matter

“Only those who have cultivated the art of living completely in the present have any use for making plans for the future. For when the plans mature they will be able to enjoy the results.”
— Alan Watts

I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be. 
(Douglas Adams)

Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. 

– Rumi
