About: Lacey, 24, Louisiana. All for happiness, travel, psychology, good tunes, delectables, biographies, & knowledge. I'm an open-minded truth seeker who is receptive, independent, full of empathy, soul, and substance. I have different degrees of certainty about different things, but I am not absolutely sure of anything.
“We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean “waves,” the universe “peoples.” Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.” —Alan Watts (via thecalminside)

“Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say My tooth is aching than to say My heart is broken.C. S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain (via wordsnquotes)

(via wordsnquotes)

I lie back in an open field and the sky surrounds me. I’m overpowered by its scale. It’s so vast and so far away that my own insignificance becomes palpable. But I don’t feel rejected by the sky. I’m part of it – tiny, to be sure, but everything is tiny compared to that overwhelming immensity.

And when I concentrate on the stars, the planets, and their motions, I have an irresistible sense of machinery, clockwork, elegant precision working on a scale that, however lofty our aspirations, dwarfs and humbles us.

Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot (via whats-out-there)
“The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it’s not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person—without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.” —Osho (via psych-facts)

“Can I touch the center of my pain? Can I sit with suffering, both yours and mine, without trying to make it go away? Can I stay present to the ache of loss or disgrace—disappointment in all its many forms—and let it open me?” —Pema Chodron (via maninsun)

“Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is.” —Jim Morrison (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
“If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.” —Henry Ford (via itsquoted)
“The simplest questions are the most profound.
Where were you born?
Where is your home?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
Think about these once in awhile, and watch your answers change.”
—Richard Bach (via itsquoted)
“To enjoy life, we must touch much of it lightly.” —Voltaire (via itsquoted)
“First of all, you need to know that an emotion is only that—an emotion—even though it may be a big, strong one. You are so much bigger, so much more than this emotion.” —Thich Nhat Hanh (via thecalminside)
