Mindfulness

The spiritual man conquers wrath by calmness, stops quarrels by keeping silent, dispels inharmony by being sweet of speech, and shames discourtesy by being thoughtful of others.
Self-reformation, self-control, positive behaviour, control of speech, sweet words, all these are soul powers that clothe us in robes of magnetism. In the expression of soul qualities lies the only way to live peacefully at home; the power is within us to make home a paradise of hades.
If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Wherever you go you will find people lying to you, and as your awareness grows, you will notice that you also lie to yourself.
Whatever life takes away from you, let it go.
Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
Don't Make Assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
If someone comes along and shoots an arrow into your heart, it’s fruitless to stand there and yell at the person.
This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.
Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals.
You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.
The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being.
Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.
Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.
Days are expensive. When you spend a day you have one less day to spend. So make sure you spend each one wisely.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not a bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
All of us live in a participatory universe. Once you decide that you want to participate fully, with mind, body, and soul, the paradigm shift becomes personal.
