compassionmeditation:
According to tantra, perfection is not something that is waiting for us somewhere in the future. Heaven is now! We should be gods and goddesses right now. Every man and woman contains both male and female energy. In fact, each one of us is a union of all universal energy. Everything that we need in order to be complete is within us right at this very moment. It is simply a matter of being able to recognize it. – Lama Yeshe

"

This, this is about my own some-day daughter. When you approach me, already stung-stayed with insecurity, begging, “Mom, will I be pretty? Will I be pretty?” I will wipe that question from your mouth like cheap lipstick and answer, “No! The word pretty is unworthy of everything you will be, and no child of mine will be contained in five letters.

“You will be pretty intelligent, pretty creative, pretty amazing. But you, will never be merely ‘pretty’.

"
Kate Makkai, “Pretty” (via feellng)

Anaïs Nin by Irving Penn (1970)

"There are two ways to reach me: by way of kisses or by way of the imagination.
But there is a hierarchy: the kisses alone don’t work.”

(from:” Henry and June”)

the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless
furnace of this world."
