Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.
Lao Tzu (via liberatingreality)
I’m becoming more silent these days. I’m speaking less and less in public. But my eyes, god damn, my eyes see everything.
You look at where you’re going and where you are and it never makes sense, but then you look back at where you’ve been and a pattern seems to emerge.
Robert M. Pirsig (via purplebuddhaproject)
In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only do with somebody else. It’s important to combine the two in just the right amount.

what am i looking for… as i tumble down my tumblr dash…
what am i infinitely scrolling to find….?
Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different.
