To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
― quote by Thích Nhất Hạnh.
This quote reminds us that we’re all beautiful in our own way. You are the one unique you, the only one there will ever be, the you the universe put here because without you the universe would not be the same. Accept yourself and love yourself as the universe does. To develop self acceptance, read our guide to loving kindness meditation.

We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.

A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.

The best thing in life is to enjoy the journey. Enlightened minds don’t think of destination. They live in the here and now. By being mindful and living in the moment we can enjoy the fullness of every step of our journey.
