Becoming YOU is not a destination: it is a practice. And with every new moment in our lives, we get to practice.
The conviction that you, or anyone else, knows what you already need to know could be one of biggest challenges you and/or other people face.
Practicing loving kindness meditation is like digging deep into the ground until we reach the purest water.
When you remove the conflict within yourself, you also remove the conflict between yourself and others.
The idea of taking care of ourselves and others can lead to greater appreciation of others.
We cannot go back, and we can't be in the future. So we have to be and give our best in every "right now" that we have.
We certainly have choice in our lives to do what we want. The hope is we will choose not to make others suffer.
As nations and individuals, we have so many wrong perceptions about ourselves and about each other, and these are the foundation of our hatred, fear and distrust.
We learn by making mistakes. We can begin anew at the last moment of the day and even at the last moment of our life.
Sometimes when we flail, fight and resist, we only sink deeper, perhaps even drown in our unwanted reality.
