Folio from a Qur’an manuscript, ca. 1180

You have to sincerely want to awaken. And I kid you not, to awaken is simple. You just have to give up everything mentally. That’s all.
Robert Adams (via ashramof1)
Compassion and kindness towards oneself are intrinsically woven into mindfulness.
Jon Kabat-Zinn (via thecalminside)
“The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly — you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you. This is the disease. You believe that you are your mind. This is the delusion. The instrument has taken you over.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
