"Grasping is the source of all our problems. Since impermanence to us spells anguish, we grasp onto things desperately, even though all things change. We are terrified of letting go, terrified, in fact, of living at all, since learning to live is learning to let go.
—And this is the tragedy and the irony of our struggle to hold on: Not only is it impossible, but it brings us the very pain we are seeking to avoid."

— Sogyal Rinpoche from The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

"Do you think that you can clear your mind by sitting constantly in silent meditation? This makes your mind narrow, not clear. Integral awareness is fluid and adaptable, present in all places and at all times. That is true meditation. The Tao is clear and simple, and it doesn’t avoid the world."

Lao Tzu (via stardust-seedling)

Capuchin Crypt, Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappucini

Under the church of Santa Maria della Cocezione in Rome,lies the fascinatingly morbid Capuchin Crypt, a small space consisting of 7 tiny chapels, entirely decorated by the bones of 4000 Capuchin friars, who died between 1528 and 1870.

elephas:

Be confident. Be yourself.

This little guy showed up on my dashboard. It’s one of my older comics, and it’s neat to see it making the Tumblr rounds! If you’re interested in decorating your house with vomiting vultures, I sell posters of this fellow. I never get tired of watching TUVUs circle lazily yet ominously over the city.

Beauty and terror.
Just keep going.
No feeling is final."
