"What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be."
- Socrates (via littlecornerofzen)
"If you deny every form of clinging to something that will give you comfort, not knowing where it is going to lead you in that state of uncertainty, in that state of danger, that is denial. In this search for contentment, comfort, your thoughts and feelings become shallow, barren, trivial, and life becomes an empty shell. The human mind is lethargic; it has been so dulled by authority, so shaped, controlled, conditioned, that it cannot stand by itself. But to stand by oneself is the only way to understand truth. Are you really, fundamentally interested in understanding truth? No, most of you are not. You are only interested in supporting the system that you now hold, in finding substitutes, in seeking comfort and security; and in that search you are exploiting others and being exploited yourselves. In that there is no happiness, no richness, no fullness. Be Disturbed for The Rest of Your Life."
- Jiddu Krishnamurti (via beatized)
"Until you can get as excited about studying The Bible, Jesus, and spirituality as much as you do about sports, entertainment, romance, and self indulgence, you have a serious spiritual problem."
- D. J. B. (via peacegoldlove)

"Write her a letter, send her a flower, love only gets old if you let it."

It’s so sad how I thought I knew you but, each day I learn how vile of a person you truly are.
