Mindfulness

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.
My eye is ever on those who love me.
To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.
In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole, and complete.
Loving the self, to me, begins with never ever criticizing ourselves for anything. Criticism locks us into the very pattern we are trying to change. Understanding and being gentle with ourselves helps us to move out of it. Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.
Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there.
Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
