Kim Kardashian filing for divorce after 72 days citing “irreconcilable differences.”
News flash to Kim and anyone thinking about getting married: Marriage is hard. It takes work. Marriage is about reconciling your differences and working as a team and sticking by your partner no matter what. The only people I think shouldn’t be allowed to get married are those that don’t respect marriage. 72 days? You really worked hard. Bravo.
“A human being is part of a whole, called by us ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space. A person experiences themselves as something separate from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of their consciousness. This delusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affectation for a few people near us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”—Albert Einstein
Because meditation is such a powerful force for change, and helpful in countless ways, I wonder if God perhaps gives back to us. Synchronous events let us know that we are on the right track and encourage us to continue meditating. In my experience, they happen with greater frequency the more I meditate.

“I find that somehow, by shifting the focus of attention, I become the very thing I look at, and experience the kind of consciousness it has; I become the inner witness of the thing. I call this capacity of entering other focal points of consciousness, love; you may give it any name you like. Love says “I am everything”. Wisdom says “I am nothing”. Between the two, my life flows. Since at any point of time and space I can be both the subject and the object of experience, I express it by saying that I am both, and neither, and beyond both.”—Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (via lazyyogi)
Went to see 50/50 tonight with fellow movie fan Nancy Armstrong.
Allow me to share something with you:
EVERYONE needs to see this movie.
What a story of courage, strength and of taking risks. What a beautiful reminder of what is truly important. To let go of the past, the hurt, the anger; to forgive those that deserve it, and to take some chances in life. Go see this movie; you’ll leave the Theater a more aware person. You won’t be able to help it.
“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.”— Mohandas Ghandi (via clandestinegalaxy)
“Tears have got nothing to do with sadness and pain. Whenever any experience becomes very intense, tears flow. If tears of love, joy and ecstasy have not yet washed your cheeks, you have yet to taste life.”—Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev
“Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson (via ohmuffins)
GIVE UP DEFINING YOURSELF - TO YOURSELF OR TO OTHERS. YOU WON’T DIE. YOU WILL COME TO LIFE. AND DON’T BE CONCERNED WITH HOW OTHERS DEFINE YOU. WHEN THEY DEFINE YOU, THEY ARE LIMITING THEMSELVES, SO IT’S THEIR PROBLEM. WHENEVER YOU INTERACT WITH PEOPLE, DON’T BE THERE PRIMARILY AS A FUNCTION OR A ROLE, BUT AS THE FIELD OF CONSCIOUS PRESENCE.
YOU CAN ONLY LOSE SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE, BUT YOU CANNOT LOSE SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE.
“The funny thing about fairy tales, is that we forget about them so fast. And we grow up, we buy things, we build up fences. We sell our innocence and forget our dreams. We forget who we are in order to be something we’re not. And we’ll keep believing in this so called truths, until we forget how to live. Or until we open our eyes, and wake up.”—Loïc Wirth (via eatsloveforbreakfast)
“When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself.”—Tecumseh
