Are we on the right road? Are we gaining knowledge? Are we approaching salvation? Or are we perhaps going in circles - we who thought to escape from the cycle? Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse (via thusreluctant)

“Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?” That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.”

Hermann Hesse, from Siddhartha (New Directions, 1951, first published in 1922)

jaeilcho:

A set of illustrations detailing the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism. This was a personal project done to “modernize” aspects of Buddhist teachings into an art style that suits my flavor.  

The four pieces were drawn digitally through Illustrator. Inspired by a lot of Korean and Tibetan Buddhist art, as well as cd cover concepts. Unfortunately I will not go on length about the specific meaning of the teachings, as I feel that there are a lot of information online that does it better than I can. For some reference, our eternal friend, Wikipedia.

Others, however, few, are like stars: they have a fixed course, no wind reaches them, they have their law and courses inside them. — Siddhartha, Hermann Hesse (via themarqueemoon)

I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace. — Siddhartha  (via gogh-wilde)

Peace comes from within
Do not seek it without.

So at the hospital one of my therapists have me this really awesome book that he said is going to help me.

I can’t believe he just tatted talking about it then randomly came back win it and gave it to me. Siddhartha is the book and I think it’s really going to help. I’m just really scared right now

I push away the people who are closest to me and now I’m in jail
