“People who do not know how to practice the way therefore want to get rid of afflictions. Afflictions are originally void and null; you are trying to use the way to seek the way beyond.”

With Every Breath - Anonymous

With every breath I take today,
I vow to be awake;

And every step I take,
I vow to take with a grateful heart

So I may see with eyes of love
into the hearts of all I meet,

To ease their burden when I can
And touch them with a smile of peace.

“The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.”

On clinging...

"Whoever clings to mind sees not the truth of what’s beyond the mind. Whoever strives to practice Dharma finds not the truth of Beyond-practice. One should cut cleanly through the root of mind and stare naked. One should thus break away from all distinctions and remain at ease."

The Song of Mahamudra

Thoughts like water...

"Develop a meditation that is like water. Doing this, you will find that the thoughts and impressions that possess you will flow away. Just as people wash away their body liquids, their sweat and spittle, pus and blood, and yet the water is not troubled or disgusted: so this water meditation will bring you peace."

Vibration and attraction...


"You live in a pulsating, vibrating Universe of advanced harmonics. Everything that exists, in your air, in your dirt, in your water, and in your bodies, is vibration in motion—and all of it is managed by the powerful Law of Attraction. There is nothing that exists outside of this vibrational nature, and as you learn to accept your vibrational nature, and begin to consciously utilize your emotional vibrational indicators, you will gain conscious control of your personal creations and of the outcomes of your life experience."

Esther Hicks (Abraham)

Defining wisdom...

"A person of wisdom should be truthful, without arrogance, without deceit, not slanderous and not hateful. The wise person should go beyond the evil of greed and miserliness. Do not get excited by what is old, do not be contented with what is new. Do not grieve for what is lost or be controlled by desire."

Sutta Nipata

Intention and manifestation...

"Intention is the core of all conscious life. It is our intentions that create karma, our intentions that help others, our intentions that lead us away from the delusions of individuality toward the immutable verities of enlightened awareness. Conscious intention colors and moves everything."

The great Rumi...

"What comes, will go. What is found, will be lost again. But what you are is beyond coming and going and beyond description. You are It."

Thoughts and us...

"Since you alone are responsible for your thoughts, only you can change them. You will want to change them when you realize that each thought creates according to its own nature. Remember that the law works at all times and that you are always demonstrating according to the kind of thoughts you habitually entertain. Therefore, start now to think only those thoughts that will bring you health and happiness."
Paramahansa Yogananda

"As a single slab of rock won't budge in the wind, so the wise are not moved by praise, by blame. Like a deep lake, clear, unruffled, & calm; so the wise become clear, calm, on hearing words of the Dhamma."

translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
