Quotes

A hundred times during an hour's sitting the mind sneaks in like a cat burglar, steals your awareness away without you even knowing, takes you off on a thought journey during which you forget all about breath, about body, even about vision and sound. During these journeys, breath gets more tied up and body becomes more frozen. And then, a hundred times an hour, you wake up to the intrusion and bring your awareness back to the possibilities of letting go again.

-- Will Johnson, Breathing Through the Whole Body


One reason he was able to forgive her was because, in learning mindfulness, he had practiced forgiving himself over and over again.

-- Mark Epstein, Advice Not Given: A Guide to Getting Over Yourself


As you sit, consider smiling lightly. This is should be a natural smile, not a grimace or a forced smile. You smile relaxes all your facial muscles. When you smile to your whole body, it is as if you are bathed in a fresh, cool stream of water.

-- Thich Nhat Hanh in How to Sit


Suffering equals pain times resistance

-- Shinzen Young


Don’t try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are.

-- Paraphrase of the Dalai Lama
