Lovely Lovely

The way is not in the sky.

The way is in the heart.

Buddha

Yellena James Art

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.

Happiness never decreases by being shared. 

Buddha

Yellena James Art

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think.

When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.

Buddha

Yellena James Art

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear.

Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one.

Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.

Buddha

I appreciate I’m in danger of incurring the wrath of the Trade Descriptions Act with the abundance of visual posts as opposed to literary masterpieces but I think these beautiful drawings by the insanely talented Yellena James are too pretty not to share…

  5. Hello Chloe the writer, nice to meet you. Love the quotes. Need them. Also, the graphics are wonderful. Will stay in touch.

  6. I keep reading these. So uplifting.

    • Aren’t they? I find the teachings so deliciously insightful – and they’re applicable to everyday life, despite maintaining an element of mysticism, they manage not to become obscure in meaning. Thanks for reading! Glad you’re enjoying 🙂
