I care about the intention behind your words, because that is what truly matters. Before you act, before you talk, feel where you are coming from. Is it your heart talking or is it ego talking, are you driven by love or by control. Are there any agendas other than that of your soul?

In meditation leave your front door and back door open. Let thoughts come and go. Just don’t serve them tea.
— Shunryu Suzuki (via panchakshara)
Constantly regard the universe as one living being, having one substance and one soul; and observe how all things have reference to one perception, the perception of this one living being; and how all things act with one movement; and how all things are the cooperating causes of all things that exist; observe too the continuous spinning of the thread and the structure of the web.
— Marcus Aurelius (via stacyangeline)
