Here is something you must understand: There are two sources for change within you. One is the cunningness of your ego that pushes you into making efforts to become something other than you are meant to be so that it can give itself a boost, so that it can glorify itself. The other is the wisdom of Nature. Thanks to this wisdom you become aware, you understand it. That is all you do, leaving the change-type, the manner, the speed, the time of change-to Reality and to Nature. Your ego is a great tech­nician. It cannot be creative. It goes in for meth­ods and techniques and produces so-called holy people who are rigid, consistent, mechanical, lifeless, as intolerant of others as they are of themselves-violent people the very opposite of holiness and love. Nature is creative. You will be a cre­ator, not a wily technician when there is aban­donment in you-no greed, no ambition, no anxiety, no sense of striving, gaining, arriving, attaining. All there is, is a keen, alert, penetrat­ing, vigilant awareness that causes the dissolu­tion of all one’s foolishness and selfishness, all one’s attachments and fears.

—Anthony De Mello (via lazylucid)

lazyyogi:

Happiness is an intrinsic quality of gratitude.

When you are grateful, you are happy.

Be grateful. Find good reasons. Find stupid reasons. Find trivial reasons.

Soon you may be surprised with how spontaneous and joyous your experiences of gratitude become.

(via lazylucid)

The “primary consciousness,” the basic mind which knows reality rather than ideas about it, does not know the future. It lives completely in the present, and perceives nothing more than what is at this moment. The ingenious brain, however, looks at that part of present experience called memory, and by studying it is able to make predictions. These predictions are, relatively, so accurate and reliable (e.g., “everyone will die”) that the future assumes a high degree of reality — so high that the present loses its value.

But the future is still not here, and cannot become a part of experienced reality until it is present. Since what we know of the future is made up of purely abstract and logical elements — inferences, guesses, deductions — it cannot be eaten, felt, smelled, seen, heard, or otherwise enjoyed. To pursue it is to pursue a constantly retreating phantom, and the faster you chase it, the faster it runs ahead. This is why all the affairs of civilization are rushed, why hardly anyone enjoys what he has, and is forever seeking more and more. Happiness, then, will consist, not of solid and substantial realities, but of such abstract and superficial things as promises, hopes, and assurances.

—Alan Watts (via lazylucid)

The present moment dies every moment to become the past , is reborn every moment into the future. All experience is now. Now never ends.

—Deepak Chopra (via purplebuddhaproject)

yourpersonalcheerleader:

If you’re thinking ” I deserve better than this" in your relationship, you do.

If you’re thinking it, then your thought is not wrong.

You do not deserve to be mistreated or disrespected. 

You deserve to be happy.

You deserve to be in a stable relationship.

You deserve to be happy.

I feel broken, empty, numb, I don’t know how to handle this, I miss my dad so much I just can’t. Everything goes so fast and I feel I’m in slow motion, I’m completely numbed and I feel so much pain it hurts me. 

Te echo tanto de menos papá que siento que no puedo soportarlo. Te prometí ser fuerte, lo intento, lucho cada día. Te quiero papá 🙏💜

Once we begin to celebrate what our body does rather than obsessing on how it looks, we start to appreciate our body as an instrument rather than an ornament.

You say you wish to be free of desires and expectations. And it is true: your own desire is disturbing you. For even noble desires such as the desire to save the world or to be a good person or even to attain liberation can actually distract you from discovering what is truly already here—natural, unbound contentment. Once you have a desire burning inside, you will be waiting anxiously for it to be fulfilled, and if it is not fulfilled, your anxiety will increase. So it is good to be open to the possibility of dropping all desires. Desire promises much but fulfills little. Though it is possible, most people find it impossible to drop even a single desire as they feel they will lose something precious. It is like taking a dry bone from a dog. So rather than telling you to drop desire, I say, find out what it actually promises to give you, and also identify the actual person who will receive it. Don’t assume. Find out. Is any of this real? These questions can feel deeply challenging as they threaten to expose ego’s unreality. Very few go beyond to discover their real power as the undivided Self and so put an end to delusion.

Should you choose to accept this Mission… You are invited to incarnate upon a world where a great Transformation will take place. You who respond to this Call , will go to a place of planetary evolution where the illusions of fear and separation are strong teachers. I am calling those with the needed talents and gifts to act as my emissaries there, to Lift and Transform the frequencies of planet Earth, simply by Embodying and Anchoring Love’s Presence there. You will be the Creators of a New Reality.  Align your Heart to the promptings of pure Love and compassionate Service.  As Sun Runners and Torch Bearers, you will hold the Light high. It is part of the Plan that you will be veiled in forgetting. You will incarnate strategically…often in some of the most vibrationally dense areas on the planet. Your Love will transform the depths of duality, and your Light will quicken the many. This transformational shift on Earth is very rare and precious..  THE MAYAN ORACLE: The Return Path to the Stars.
