Via Mindfulness in Daily Life: Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje

The deepest reasons to love yourself have nothing to do with anything outside you—not with your body or with others’ expectations of you. If you ground yourself in your own goodness, nothing will be able to damage your self-esteem. Take delight in your inner nature, in your virtues, and in all your beautiful qualities. 

- His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje

Via Mindfulness in Daily Life / FB: Thich Nhat Hanh

From time to time, to remind ourselves to relax and be peaceful, we may wish to set aside some time for a retreat, a day of mindfulness, when we can walk slowly, smile, drink tea with a friend, enjoy being together as if we are the happiest people on Earth. 

- Thich Nhat Hanh

“Estamos tendo uma rara oportunidade de dar um salto quântico na nossa jornada evolutiva. No mais profundo, todas as crises são chances de aprendizado e transformação. Através delas, aprendemos a fazer um bom combate; aprendemos a usar nossa capacidade criativa e inteligência para encontrar soluções construtivas. E ao usarmos o nosso potencial adormecido dessa maneira, nossa consciência se expande. Por isso sempre digo que a crise é também uma benção.”

“We are having a rare opportunity to take a quantum leap in our evolutionary journey. At the deepest level, all crises are opportunities for learning and transformation. Through these crises, we learn how to fight a good battle; we learn how to use our creative capacity and intelligence to find constructive solutions. As we learn to use our dormant potential in this way, our consciousness expands. This is why I always say that a crisis is also a blessing.”

Via Daily Dharma / May 23, 2016: Taking Ourselves Less Seriously

Glimpsing nonself clearly, even for one moment, puts ordinary truth in perspective. When the conventional picture returns, we regard it differently. What a relief when we no longer have to take our “selves” so seriously!
