When you relate to thoughts obsessively, you are actually feeding them because thoughts need your attention to survive. Once you begin to pay attention to them and categorize them, then they become very powerful. You are feeding them energy because you are not seeing them as simple phenomena. If one tries to quiet them down, that is another way of feeding them.Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (via thecalminside)
Look at the tree in the front yard. The tree doesn’t seem to be doing anything. It stands there, vigorous, fresh, and beautiful, and everyone profits from it. That’s the miracle of being. If a tree were less than a tree, all of us would be in trouble. But if a tree is just a real tree, then there’s hope and joy.Thich Nhat Hanh (via thecalminside)
wait I just saw on BBC that hashtag womenagainstfeminism is a real thing ..
I legitimately thought it was an ironic joke. women actually believe that we don’t need gender equality? wait, what? are you fucking serious?
