When you are washing the dishes, washing the dishes must be the most important thing in your life. Just as when you are drinking tea, drinking tea must be the most important thing in your life. Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the whole world revolves—slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. Only this actual moment is life.

Thich Nhat Hanh (via paradoxicalsentiments)

(via paradoxicalsentiments)

If I tell people who I am and what I’m about- I’m true to myself, it means I’m not lying to myself. And what they do with that is on them. I’m not accountable for their feelings or how they perceive it.
