“Show me that you have a seed and I am prepared to expect wonders.”
If you want to understand how your mind works, sit down and observe it.
It is absolutely essential that before we think… we experience the condition of wonder.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response.
I keep my mind as empty as possible. That way, beauty can come in.
Where is peace to be found? In the same place as sorrow. How convenient.
You can observe a lot just by watching.
Mystery is the source of all true art and science. He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead.
Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.
Pain can only feed on pain. Pain cannot feed on joy. It finds it quite indigestible.
Self-observation without judgement is the highest spiritual practice.
Yoga master Swami Kripalu
There’s so much less to this than you think.
The freedom from pain is in the pain.
If we taught every 8-year-old to meditate, we would eliminate violence from the planet in a generation.
the Dalai Lama
I destroy my enemies by making them my friends.
Beneficial mind states bring more lasting satisfaction than any possession or experience we can have.
Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own thoughts. But once mastered, no one can help you as much, not even your father or mother.
Non-judgment day is near.

Mindfulness is getting a lot of attention these days, and rightly so. As a way to cultivate balance, sanity and contentment, it's been well-tested since its development 2600 years ago. Consider its longevity, in comparison to the relatively infantile field of psychotherapy, which it's generally agreed developed in the late [...]
It's symptoms like anxious feelings that often drive people to seek a therapist. In Mindfulness we refer to symptoms as 'suffering', meaning, being uncomfortable. And of course when beginning therapy, the goal is usually symptom reduction- like feeling less anxious. It's a perfectly reasonable goal, except that it may be [...]
