I do not care at all if you are male or female, young or old, fat or thin, tall or short. I do not care what you call yourself or how you dress. I do not care what language you speak or what you make important in your life. I am interested only in your heart, in your love, in your compassion. It is here, in this place that are we truly the same and share the beauty of our awakening.
The beauty of you.
May all beings be happy.(via abiding-in-peace)
Zen is not some kind of excitement, but concentration on our usual everyday routine.
Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.
