Beauty of Self

“To be beautiful means to be yourself.You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.When you are born a lotus flower,be a beautiful lotus flower,don’t try to be a magnolia flower.If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life.True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself,accepting yourself,having confidence in yourself.”-Nhat Hanh

Thoughts in Life

“The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves.We are what we are,in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head.All concepts of self-improvement,all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves.Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being.A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”- Bruce Lee

Vision in Life

“Understanding and Love are not two separate things, but just one.To develop understanding,you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion.When you understand,you cannot help but love.And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.”- Nhat Hanh
