Buddhist Thought for the Day

'Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.'
The Buddha


'Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant,
just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it.'
Sylvia Boorstein

That is the truth; we make our own happiness or misery! I choose happiness! How are you dearest Kirsten?
