"Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it."

"The worst part about anxiety attacks, is that you’re aware it’s irrational and sometimes unexplainable, but knowing that gives no aid what so ever. In most cases it deepens the anxiety as you realise “if I know it’s irrational, why can’t I stop it… Oh god I can’t stop it” you begin to believe you are no longer in control of your mind. That. That is fear."

"There are three stages in one’s spiritual development”, said the Master. “The carnal, the spiritual and the divine.”
"What is the carnal stage?",
asked the eager disciples.
"That’s the stage when trees are seen as trees and mountains as mountains."
"And the spiritual?"
"That’s when one looks more deeply into things — then trees are no longer trees and mountains no longer mountains."
"And the divine?"
"Ah, that’s Enlightenment", said the Master with a chuckle, "when trees become trees again and mountains, mountains."

"It is said of Eve
that she was so beautiful
the angels cursed God
for their immortality
and asked to die in her arms
as they saw Adam die
and be reborn.
Be that as it may,
for Adam’s part, he only knew
what you and I know,
there’s a choir in heaven
that gathers when we make love
and they all swear at God
out of our mouths."

"Tonight go to sleep as though your whole past has been dropped. Die to the past. And in the morning wake up as a new man in a new morning. Don’t let the same one who went to bed get up. Let him go to sleep for good. Let the one who is ever-new and ever-fresh awake instead."
- Osho (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
"When you experience uncertainty, you are on the right path – so don’t give it up. You don’t need to have a complete and rigid idea of what you’ll be doing next week or next year, because if you have a very clear idea of what’s going to happen and you get rigidly attached to it, then you shut out the whole range of possibilities."
- Deepak Chopra (via silentnostalgia)
"There are three things I want you to learn how to say.
“I love you”
and don’t just say it as an empty phrase,
say it with feeling,
say it to every person who comes to mind when you think of those three little words.
I know it’s scary,
I know it’s difficult,
but open yourself up
and shout it.
don’t say it under your breath,
when you love someone,
whether platonically or romantically,
it deserves to be shouted from every rooftop.
There will be some people in your life
that come in and just wreck everything,
they mess up your plans,
they hurt you,
and make you feel less than what you are,
so please learn how to say goodbye to them.
But I also want you to learn how to say goodbye
to even the people you want to stay.
not everyone stays,
and saying goodbye is like setting someone free,
and it won’t always come easy,
and it won’t always come without heartbreak,
but not everyone stays,
and it will do you a world of good to learn how to tell them
“I am worth it.”
there will be waves of sorrow in your life,
and you will feel as if you were the sand that the tide carries away,
you will feel as if it carries away your worth
it will feel like you are the left over rubble of a building
that had been burned down,
and you will feel less,
but please learn to say these words.
say them in the mirror when you have just woken up,
say them when your lover turns their back on you,
say them when you are opening up the refrigerator
and please, believe them.
You are more than sand that can just be washed away,
and you are more than just a few pieces of broken cement,
you are worth it."
These will be the three bravest things you will ever learn how to say (via amandaspoetry)
This is one of the first things I posted on tumblr that got notes - I probably posted it back in march or April and it is nice to see it still getting notes here and there!

"The things that are correct for me will come to me at the time that I am interested in them and have the capacity, the understanding, to do them."
- Julia Roberts
Take It Back
"The Pendulum Swings" by Danna Faulds
"This will be the revolution of thinking for yourself, of having your own opinion and not giving a damn about what people say. This will be a revolution of inquiring further, of not worrying about winning other people’s approval, of not wishing you were someone else, you’re perfectly content to be who you are; someone unique, rare and fearless"
- Madonna (via lisbonteresa)
