You are like a candle. Imagine you are sending light out all around you. All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions. If you say something kind, your kind words go in many directions, and you yourself go with them. We are…transforming and continuing in a different form at every moment.
— Thich Nhat Hanh (via shaktilover)
Almost all emotional imbalance is tied to past experience, past behavior, and our expectations of self and others. When these aspects are let go, the heart and mind are free to be present and to grow beyond the past.
