Be like water, my friend

empty your mind
be formless, shapeless
like water
now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup
you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle
you put it in a tea pot, it becomes the tea pot
water can flow
or it can crash
be water my friend

Guests in Your Living Room

Your mind is like a living room. Sometimes guests arrive and sit down. Sometimes you realize that you don’t like them, that you don’t enjoy their company. Eventually they leave. And you vow to be more careful about the people you invite. Learning whom to invite is an art.

One Smile One Breath

Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh

If you practice one hour [...] a day, that hour should be for all twenty-four hours, and not just for that hour. One smile, one breath should be for the benefit of the whole day, not just for that moment. We must practice in a way that removes the barrier between practice and non-practice.

Don’t Think Twice

Do, do, do what you wanna do
Don’t think twice, do what you have to do
Do, do, do, do, let your heart decide
what you have to do
That’s all there is to find

Consequences

“If it’s love” she said, “then we’re gonna have to think about the consequences”- cause she can’t stop shaking and I can’t stop touching her this time.

Yoga Is Not the Answer

Yoga is never the answer, it just prepares us to find the answers in more appropriate places, or at the very least to quit asking the questions.

Yoga förändrar inte automatiskt ens liv, men det ger dig mod och inspiration att försöka.

Unquenchable

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
