Do not allow yourself to suppress your thoughts. Instead, let the thoughts come before you and become sort of an observer. Start observing your own mind. Do not try to escape; do not be afraid of your thinking.

Śrī Swāmī Rāma (via wordsnquotes)

(via marissameh)

And sometimes life just happens to you, and you can’t dodge it. It crashes into you because it wants to see what you’re made of.

Ruby Daly (Alexandra Bracken, Never Fade)
