"The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it."
Eckhart Tolle. Author (via purplebuddhaproject)
"Our notions about happiness entrap us. We forget that they are just ideas. Our idea of happiness can prevent us from actually being happy. We fail to see the opportunity for joy that is right in front of us when we are caught in a belief that happiness should take a particular form."
Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)
