"The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it’s not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person—without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other."

Osho (via ohlovequotes)

billowing
like a spinnaker
across the open window
and here he is
the little master
sailing by
on a thread of milk
wish me luck
admiral
I haven’t finished anything
in a long time"

"Wish Me Luck," a poem by Leonard Cohen from his book Book of Longing. (via leonardcohenminute)

Taking a page from @catcatcaterina and starting my September and #yogagirlchallenge with a bang! #yogaeverydamnday started technically yesterday in the #grandcanyon with a slightly terrifying #bridgepose on a rocky overhang. It was absolutely exhilarating seeing such a grand sight from a different angle. This month is going to be truly fantastic and I look forward to everyday being as astonishing as this one was! #yogaeverydamnday with @laceedges @yoga_girl
