"As long as I am my mind, I am those cravings, those needs, wants, attachments, and aversions, and apart from them there is no ‘I’ except as a mere possibility, an unfulfilled potential, a seed that has not yet sprouted. In that state, even my desire to become free or enlightened is just another craving for fulfillment or completion in the future. So don’t seek to become free of desire or ‘achieve’ enlightenment. Become present."
— Eckhart Tolle (via thepowerofashe)
"Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it."
— Chris Brogan (via runningredmatt)
"Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow."
— –Ralph Waldo Emerson (via tamworthlyceum)
