the atoms that make up your body were once forged inside stars, and the causes of even the smallest event are virtually infinite and connected with the whole in incomprehensible ways.

Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth (via beryl-azure)

There was another life that I might have had, but I am having this one.

My thought is me: that’s why I can’t stop. I exist because I think … and I can’t stop myself from thinking.

Be proud of your place in the Cosmos. It is small, and yet, it is.

Cecil Palmer (via nightshadetears)

Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.

The universe is wider than our views of it.

Henry David Thoreau (via elige)
