"Realize you can be happy this moment for no reason. Otherwise, you eternally depend on conditions for happiness. Unconscious of this moment, you remain a victim of circumstances."
"Good and bad stuff happen. I believe it’s more important to develop a strong sense of self that lives life to the fullest (a.k.a. letting the bad and good stuff happen), knowing that life is about living it all. Not just preventing pain. But accepting that pain is a part of life. When we accept that pain is a part of life, we begin to free ourselves from the chains that bind us and thus step into a greater world."
"I don’t have to be anything at all. I don’t even have to be myself, because there is no such thing as not being myself. I am inescapably myself."
