Imam Hussein (as)
Or the part of God that resides in you.
When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits - anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.
Kim McMillen (via jaeboogie)
Thought for the day!(via thereluctantrawfoodist)
And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Eckhart Tolle said that “To love is to recognize yourself in another”. It’s wild how true that really is. Not to say that I am that great, but there is something in myself that I see that I can see in the woman I love. It’s this love of life, the desire to ask the important questions. I can ask my girlfriend anything at all, whether it’s philosophical, religious, hedonistic, questions about school, questions about life, or about love and she is not afraid to answer. Whether I agree with her or not, she answers it anyways and gives me something new, something fresh to think on. That is love. It brings the concept of a best friend into play. It brings into my life a woman who I could spend hours with just talking with. A woman who I can bring around my friends, family, or strangers and have complete confidence in who we are as a couple and who she is as a woman. A woman who I am so happy to have people meet, because they are just as impressed with her as I am.
Until we have met the monsters in ourselves, we keep trying to slay them in the outer world. And we find that we cannot. For all darkness in the world stems from darkness in the heart. And it is there that we must do our work.
