Reduce intellectual and emotional noise
until you arrive at the silence of yourself
and listen to it.
And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles, no matter how long, but only by a spiritual journey, a journey of one inch, very arduous and humbling and joyful, by which we arrive at the ground at our own feet, and learn to be at home.Wendell Berry (via thestylishgypsy)
Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
We often get caught up in our own reactions and forget the vulnerability of the person in front of us.Sharon Salzberg (via shaktilover)
