If I have harmed anyone, in any way, either knowingly or unknowingly through my own confusions, I ask forgiveness.

If anyone has harmed me, in any way, either knowingly or unknowingly through their own confusions, I forgive them.

And if there is a situation I am not yet ready to forgive, I forgive myself for that.

For all the ways that I harm myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or be unkind to myself through my own confusions, I forgive myself.
Buddhist prayer (via yeshecholwa)
Generally, by the time you are real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.

But down deep, at the molecular heart of life, we’re essentially identical to trees.

Key to happiness right here. 

In the mirror of your mind images appear and disappear. The mirror remains. Learn to distinguish the immovable in the movable, the unchanging in the changing, till you realize that all differences are appearances only and oneness is a fact. This basic identity - you may call God, or Brahman, or the matrix (Prakriti), the words matter little - is only the realization that all is one. Once you can say with confidence born from direct experience: ‘I am the world, the world is myself’, you are fee from desire and fear on one hand and become totally responsible for the world on the other. The senseless sorrow of mankind becomes your sole concern.
