"True love knows no distance, beauty face and body size, it’s all about what you feel inside your heart and accept someone for who they are."

"Mindfulness meditation doesn’t change life. Life remains as fragile and unpredictable as ever. Meditation changes the heart’s capacity to accept life as it is. It teaches the heart to be more accommodating, not by beating it into submission, but by making it clear that accommodation is a gratifying choice."

— Sylvia Boorstein  (via reincarnatedangel)

"Hard as I try, I cannot create the reality of the sun rising in the west, and I cannot create the reality of the people I know with illnesses being miraculously cured. But one reality I can create - the point of view I bring to any experience."

THE PATH OF PAUSING
"The primary focus of this path of choosing wisely, of this training to de-escalate aggression, is learning to stay present. Pausing very briefly, frequently throughout the day, is an almost effortless way to do this. For just a few seconds we can be right here. Meditation is another way to train in learning to stay, or, as one student put it more accurately, learning to come back, to return to being present over and over again. The truth is, anyone who’s ever tried meditation learns really quickly that we are almost never fully present. I remember when I was first given meditation instruction. It sounds so simple: Just sit down, get comfortable, and bring light awareness to your breath. When your mind wanders, gently come back and stay present with your breath. I thought, “This will be easy.” Then someone hit a gong to begin and I tried it. What I found was that I wasn’t present with a single breath until they hit the gong again to end the session. I had spent the whole time lost in thought.”

"Letting go requires the bravery of jumping into an abyss. We don’t know what can happen, but intuitively we know there is nothing to lose. In fact we never fall, we fly, we glide we become weightless.
But this takes time and determination."
