"Ego says, “Once everything falls into place, I’ll feel peace.”
Spirit says, “Find your peace, and then everything will fall into place."
"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the lights."
"No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change."
Thích Nhất Hạnh
"Existence certainly rejoices when you are blissful. Existence is almost an echo of your being. If you are in anxiety, everything around you becomes tense; and if you are silent, everything around you becomes a silent music, a silent dance. Remember that you are not separate from existence; so when you are happy, all these trees are also happy. Happiness is contagious."
