“Just stop for a minute and you’ll realize you’re happy just being.
I think it’s the pursuit that screws up happiness.
If we drop the pursuit, it’s right here.”
- James Hillman

"You can’t prevent the birds of sadness
from passing over your head
but you can sure prevent them 
from making nests in your head.”

from passing over your head

Time is a created thing.
To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.
— Lao Tzu
“If there is no joy, ease, or lightness in what you are doing, it does not necessarily mean that you need to change what you are doing. It may be sufficient to change the how. “How” is always more important than “what.” See if you can give much more attention to the doing than to the result that you want to achieve through it.Give your fullest attention to whatever the moment presents. This implies that you also completely accept what is, because you cannot give your full attention to something and at the same time resist it.As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out of present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love—even the most simple action.”
—Eckhart Tolle (via lazyyogi)

“To dwell in the here and now does not mean you never think about the past or responsibly plan for the future. The idea is simply not to allow yourself to get lost in regrets about the past or worries about the future. If you are firmly grounded in the present moment, the past can be an object of inquiry, the object of your mindfulness and concentration. You can attain many insights by looking into the past. But you are still grounded in the present moment.”—Thich Nhat Hanh

Healing does not mean going back to the way things were before,

but rather allowing what is now to move us closer to God.

“I learned… that inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic, striving, but it comes to us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness.”— Brenda Ueland
