“As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.”

Thich Quang Duc was a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk who burned himself to death at a busy Saigon road intersection on June 11 1963. Quang Duc was protesting about the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese government led by Ngo Dinh Diem. After his death, his body was re-cremated, but his heart remained intact.

It’s important to note that not once did he make a sound while he burned himself alive.
Every single time I see this, I am amazed at the fact he not only just sat there calmly while burning to death, but didn’t make a sound at all. As someone that’s been on fire before and gotten badly burnt (full thickness burns, AKA 3rd degree burns), it defies everything I know about the whole experience. It was absolute fucking agony and after good deal of time of feeling the pain of my flesh burning and realising I couldn’t put myself out, I lost my mind and ran around screaming and swearing. Knowing what that feels like, I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how he did that. I just can’t.
Have you ever met someone
And they’re so fucking perfect in every way.
And maybe they aren’t perfect to everybody, but to you they’re just absolutely amazing.
The way they laugh and smile and talk and think and look and just everything about them and everything they do just keeps amazing you.
