We cannot change anything unless 
we accept it. Condemnation
does not liberate, it oppresses.

A happy or unhappy life 
is your own creation. 
Nobody else is responsible.
If you remember this, you
won't find fault with anybody.
You are your own best friend
as well as your worst enemy.

~ Sri Swami Satchidananda

Everyone messes up, lets people down, and
makes mistakes. Not because we're inadequate
or fundamentally inept, but because we're 
imperfect and fundamentally human.
Expecting anything different is 
setting yourself up for failure.

~ Daniell Koepke

Did you ever notice that 
when you give things away, 
you keep getting more? 
That, as you create a vacuum, 
more flows in?

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced
acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or receiving the present 
moment, pleasant or unpleasant,
just as it is, without either 
clinging to it or rejecting it.

~ Syliva Boorstein

What you do makes a difference,
and you have to decide what kind
of difference you want to make.

It is not impermanence
that makes us suffer.
What makes us suffer 
is wanting things to be 
permanent when they are not.

Three things in human 
life are important. 
The first is to be kind.

And the third is to be kind.
