"May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks."
— J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit (via observando)
"When we’re young, we develop these adaptations to our environment that we are growing up in. You are born with a personality, with a set of traits, with a set of talents, and that makes you who you are. But sometimes who you come in as does not fit into the family group or the society that you came into. And so, what starts to happen is this socialization… there is a certain way you behave- a certain way you come across to people- there are certain things you say and don’t say. And what it creates is a disconnect between people’s true selves and their false selves. So the way they adapt to that environment is by becoming whatever fits into the society instead of being genuine."
— Teal Swan (The Spiritual Catalyst), author of The Sculptor in the Sky (via flypurely)
