When the world pushes you to your knees,
you are in the perfect position to pray.
Rumi (via unconditionedconsciousness)
When you learn to love hell, you will be in heaven.

In the midst of difficulty it’s helpful to change the way we look at our situation. “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”
Abraham Lincoln (via christinaleevdubs)
ombuddha: The nature of everything is illusory and ephemeral, Those with dualistic perception regard suffering as happiness, Like they who lick the honey from a razor’s edge. How pitiful are they who cling strongly to concrete reality: Turn your attention within, my heart friends. Nyoshul Khen Ripoche. Photo by Timothy Teruo Watters.
