Peace is within oneself to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it.

Ajahn Chah (via thecalminside)


كُن مجنوناً لأجلهآ
فالأنثى لا يُغريها حُبُّ العُقلاء

"Be insane for her sake,
for the female doesn’t get turned on by the love of the sane”

- Nizar Qabbani
