"Eliminate mental muddiness and obscurity; keep your mind crystal clear. Allow your pure original insight to emerge. Quiet your emotions and abide in serenity. Don’t go crazy with the worship of idols, images, and ideas; this is like putting a new head on top of the head you already have. Remember: if you can cease all restless activity, your integral nature will appear."
— Lao Tzu, Hua Hu Ching (via tobiji)

I want a ginormous porch with a rocking chair and late night impromptu seisuns in my backyard/living room/in my head and to live by the sea so the waves can take me far, far away from the city. I want to share stories with my neighbours and collect theirs. I want berry-stained fingers from making too much pie. I want the things I cannot have.
Reblogging an old post so I don’t lose sight of what I want.

"I may have big troubles but I can, if I will, make them less painful by turning my thoughts to happier things. I will not isolate myself in my problems. I will observe and enjoy what is good and pleasant in the world around me."
