.The practice of being open requires that we first notice where it is that we are closed. Examine the areas of your life and your thinking that feel constricted, frightened, anxious or angry. It is in those parts of ourselves where we have the opportunity to shift, and to move more fully into trust in God's presence and power in our lives.

.What we are today comes from thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: our life is the creation of our mind. - Buddha
.All of man's problems stem from his inability to sit alone in a room for any length of time. - Pascal
.Awareness can be called upon to be a companion for our anger. Our awareness of our anger does not suppress it or drive it out. It just looks after it. This is a very important principle. Mindfulness is not a judge. - Thich Nhat Hanh
.We can only know our self by watching, by being aware of our daily acts in situations we face every day. We can only know our self by watching our mind, our feelings, our emotions and understanding them. Slowly slowly the fire of awareness will burn our unconsciousness, will burn what does not belong to us. Our original face will slowly slowly appear.
.To me, awareness is the only morality, the only ethics, the only religion, because out of awareness you cannot do anything wrong. It is always your unconscious mind, which forces you to do wrong things. As awareness grows, slowly slowly, your whole being becomes luminous; there is no dark spot inside you. - Osho
.Breath is the essence of life and of spirituality. In fact, the word spiritual itself is derived from spiritus, which means breath in Latin. Breathing is the link between our bodies and the world outside us. It is not surprising then that awareness of breathing is the basis of meditation in many traditions. - "Chop Wood Carry Water", Rick Fields, Rex Weyler, Rick Ingrasci, and Peggy Taylor
.Breathing into fear and resistance; breathing and consciously surrendering, letting go, and trusting; breathing during times of threatening stress - these are moments of extreme power and transformation
.There can be no happiness if the things we believe in are different from the things we do. - Albert Camus
.Success isn't permanent and failure isn't fatal. - Mike Ditka
.Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you --all of the expectations, all of the beliefs-- and becoming who you are. - Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.
.There is only one journey. Going inside yourself. - Rainer Maria Rilke
.Meditation needs to be integrated to your everyday actions, washing your face, eating, walking, working and that sort of things. One must do them with full awareness. Perception into the nature of things comes from doing such things wholeheartedly. - Zhaozhou Congshen
.I do my thing, and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you. And I am I. - Fritz Perls
.To oppose something is to maintain it. - Ursula K. LeGuin
The effort to oppose gives strength and durability to that which we would already be rid of. By utilizing our energies to resist that which persists, by engaging our minds to battle those thoughts or feelings we would wish to eradicate, we give them more presence and power. Whereas, we may allow those thoughts and feelings to retreat untouched from the field, if we can watch them without engagement, and so not stir them with the battlements of opposition and allow them to fight on and endure.
.Be soft in your practice.
Think of the method as a fine silvery stream, not a raging waterfall.
Follow the stream, have faith in its course.
It will go it's own way, meandering here, trickling there.
It will find the grooves, the cracks, the crevices.
Just follow it.
Never let it out of your sight.
It will take you. - Sheng-Yen
.Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. - Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
.All I can do is engage with complete sincerity. Then whatever happens, there is no regret. - The Dalai Lama
.SIT. REST. WORK. Let these three words sink deep in your heart. Learn to sit silently, restfully, not fighting with yourself, relaxed. Be at rest... and when energy accumulates in you, start being creative. Paint, sing, dance, or do whatsoever you feel like doing to make this world a little more beautiful, a little more warm. - Osho
.Any moment is the best moment and any place, the best place. If only you perceive this wholeheartedly. - Panshan
A good read….
A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, "How heavy is this glass of water?"
Answers called out ranged from 8oz. to 20oz.
The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it. "If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance."
"In each case, it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes. "
He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on. "
"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden. "
"So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work/life down. Don't carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow."
"Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can. Relax; pick them up later after you've rested. Life is short. Enjoy! "
And then he shared some ways of dealing with the burdens of life:
1 * Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
2 * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
3 * Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
4 * Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.
5 * If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
6 * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
7 * It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
8 * Never buy a car you can't push.
9 * Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.
10 * Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
11 * Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.
12 * The second mouse gets the cheese.
13 * When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
14 * Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
15 * You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
16 * Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once
17 * We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box .
18 * A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today .
