"Once you have identified with some form of negativity, you do not want to let go, and on a deeply unconscious level, you do not want positive change. It would threaten your identity as a depressed, angry, or hard-done by person. You will then ignore, deny, or sabotage the positive in your life. This is a common phenomenon. It is also insane."
— Eckhart Tolle (via skeletongarden)

"Part of what psychedelics do is they decondition you from cultural values. This is what makes it such a political hot potato. Since all culture is a kind of con game, the most dangerous candy you can hand out is one which causes people to start questioning the rules of the game."
— Terence McKenna (via f1ndyourcenter)
"On a deeper level you are already complete. When you realize that, there is a joyous energy behind what you do."
— Eckhart Tolle (via lazyyogi)
"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough."
— Meister Eckhart (via samsaranmusing)
"Meditation is another dimension of natural beauty. People talk about appreciating natural beauty — climbing mountains, seeing giraffes and tigers in Africa, and all sorts of things. But nobody seems to appreciate this kind of natural beauty of ourselves. This is actually far more beautiful than flora and fauna, far more fantastic, far more painful and colorful and delightful."
— Chogyam Trungpa (via simplytroy)
"Desire is the need to add something to yourself in order to be yourself more fully. All fear is the fear of losing something and thereby becoming diminished and being less."
— Eckhart Tolle (via samsaranmusing)
"Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible. As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know."
— Carl Jung (via rabbitinthemoon)
