“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.

We are living in interesting and paradoxical times. The internet and smartphones, hailed as inventions that would save us tons of time and free us to do the things we most want to do, have in many cases done the opposite. So many of us are wasting time checking things [...]
It might seem like stating the obvious to observe that most of the moments in our days are spent getting from A to B. Getting to work, and home again. Getting to a movie, or dinner. Life follows the same pattern- we're trying to get somewhere: To a better [...]
