From its own ashes
— Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents (via purplebuddhaproject)
"Go back to that state of pure being where the ‘I am’ is still in its purity before it got contaminated with ‘this I am’ or ‘that I am’. Your burden is of false-identifications—abandon them all."
— Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (via yeshecholwa)
"I feel it, you know. I can’t help feeling it."
"You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving."
— Anatole France (via purplebuddhaproject)
