"It is a very common, ancient, well-perfected device for trying to feel better. Blame others….Blaming is a way to protect your heart, trying to protect what is soft and open and tender in yourself. Rather than own that pain, we scramble to find some comfortable ground."
― Pema Chödrön (via purplebuddhaproject)
"We know how the sky looks like. We know how the stars look like. We know how this natural roof over our heads looks like, yet we sometimes find ourselves staring at it for so long, because it is where we turn our heads to catch some air when we are oddly breathing breathlessly, it is where we escape from earth while we are on earth, it is where we search for miracles, and most importantly, it is where our eyes can take a break from every creature on earth and restart the system of the mind. So, yes we know how this natural roof looks like until we look at it again."
