Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up. If you become winded, slow down. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion. Then, when you’re no longer thinking ahead, each footstep isn’t just a means to an end but a unique event in itself….To live only for some future goal is shallow. It’s the sides of the mountains which sustain life, not the top.

You’ve been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens

When someone calls you sensitive as if it’s a weakness, don’t listen to that. It isn’t a weakness, it’s a strength. If you are highly sensitive you are also probably very empathetic to others. You can tap into their emotions and actually physically experience them. Beautiful music or writing resonates with you on a deeper level and can bring you to tears. You are usually intuitive, creative & insightful. You may be so intuitive that you can even predict the future. You have a greater conscience & are less likely to harm others- especially those you love. You probably have the ability to connect with animals in a rare way. You experience pain on a grand scale, but you also experience love & happiness in the most powerful & passionate ways. So next time someone tells you that you’re “too sensitive”, just smile and tell them thanks.
