Act now to remember the clarity, compassion, and joyfulness of your true nature. Nothing else is as urgent.
Buddhism directs our attention to the eternal moment inside ordinary things.
Buddhists teach this: True insight leads to compassion.
It’s important not to blame yourself for having reactive thoughts & feelings. They seem to be a natural part of being human.
It’s natural to apply yourself in a disciplined way to learn to live less reactively.
Joy is not your separate and individual joy. It is the joy that others, everywhere, feel.
Pain is not just your separate and individual pain. It is the pain that others, everywhere, feel.
Sit quietly & in a non-directive way, allow your attention to gently settle upon the ever-changing process of your breathing.
So attend wholly to the one thing before you. And the radiance of the entire universe will dwell in that one small thing.
The dancers and the dance are one. And one with us. There is no dance separate from the dancers.
We are born with the potential for knowing (ultimate reality) directly. in the most ordinary moments of our daily lives.
Why meditate? You start to unhook the automatic cycle of reactivity and gain some freedom.
