If we stop trying to constantly fill emptiness with something, and actually dive into the emptiness and make it Home, we will find our Self.

"Know then that the body is merely a garment. Go seek the wearer, not the cloak."

Anonymous asked: How do you make emptiness your Home?


Hi sweetheart. <3

In my experience, you get comfortable with not rushing to fill it with something. You feel complete when you are alone and not being applauded, reassured, or entertained. You don’t need something to point to or hang your identity on in order to feel worthy. You can just Be and feel content bathing in Silence.

How? Meditate regularly, contemplate, and practice mindfulness. 

Namaste, beautiful spirit. 

"The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the other’s welcome."

- Derek Walcott (via shaktilover)

"First be full of love, then the sharing happens. And then the great surprise… that as you give, you start receiving from unknown sources, from unknown corners, from unknown people, from trees, from rivers, from mountains. From all nooks and corners of existence love starts showering on you. The more you give, the more you get. Life becomes a sheer dance of love."

- Osho - Love, freedom, aloneness (via iam-youis)

"I want to live so densely. lush. and slow in the next few years, that a year becomes ten years, and my past becomes only a page in the book of my life."
