The development of steady concentration comes through nurturing an inner peacefulness. As our meditative skill grows, we learn that the mind becomes concentrated not through strain and struggle, but from letting go of anxiety about the past and future, and relaxing into the present. This is a natural process. Through our paying attention, again and again, a quality of calm interest begins to grow and the mind settles lightly into the moment.    ~Jack Kornfield

consider how we lock our hearts…..

inquiry for today~   our vast and limitless lives seem so far away from our day-to-day living……why?

how we play well with others

If your mind is expansive and unfettered, you will find yourself in a more accommodating world, a place that’s endlessly interesting and alive. That quality isn’t inherent in the place but in your state of mind. The warrior longs to communicate that all of us have access to our basic goodness and that genuine freedom comes from going beyond labels and projections, beyond bias and prejudice, and taking care of each other.    ~Pema Chodron
