“Our own worst enemy
.
cannot harm us

as much as our

unwise thoughts.

No one can help us
.
as much as our own
.
compassionate thoughts.”

“If you concentrate
.
on finding whatever is good
.
in every situation,
.
you will discover
.
that your life
.
will suddenly
.
be filled with gratitude,
.
a feeling
.
that nurtures the soul.”

In this moment,

there is plenty of time.
.
In this moment,
.
you are precisely
.
as you should be.
.
In this moment,
.
there is infinite
.
possibility.”

“In today’s rush,
.
we all think too much —
.
seek too much —
.
want too much —
.
and forget about
.
the joy of just being.”

Pay attention

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
.
as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves –
.
slowly, evenly,
.
without rushing toward the future;
.
live the actual moment.
.
Only this moment is life.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh –

Deep joy of release: “Focused and Fearless”

image

.
.
“If you keep examining—
.
not until you find something,
.
but until you realize
.
seeing without grasping,
.
inquiring without fixating,
.
exploring without expecting,
.
knowing without controlling,
.
living without suffering—
.
you will discover a purity of happiness that is unbounded.
.
.
It is a happiness beyond anything contrived by concentration: the deep joy of release.”

Just a swinging door!

.
.
What we call ‘I’ is just a swinging door,
.
which moves when we inhale and when we exhale.
