Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment. and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.– Thich Nhat Hanh (via yogachocolatelove)
Let-go means no competition, no struggle, no fight… just relaxing with existence, wherever it leads. Not trying to control your future, not trying to control consequences, but allowing them to happen… not even thinking about them. Let-go is in the present; consequences are tomorrow. And let-go is such a delightful experience, a total relaxation, a deep synchronicity with existence.– Osho (via yogachocolatelove)
Doing is never enough if you neglect Being.
Is this awesome? yes, absolutely. Inspiring. Every time I manage to come up with a reason not to visit my mat I will remember this.
