Monday Reflection: What Really Matters?

At any moment throughout the day,
if you find yourself driven by wanting,
the question “What does my heart really long for?”
will help you reconnect to the purity of spiritual yearning.

By pausing and asking yourself at any moment,
“What really matters?”
“What do I most care about?”
You awaken your naturally caring heart.

Monday Reflection: Wisdom of the Heart

The wisdom of the heart can be found in any circumstance,
on any planet, round or square.
It arises not through knowledge,
or images of perfection,
or by comparison and judgment,
but by seeing with the eyes of wisdom
and the heart of loving attention,
by touching with compassion
all that exists in our world

-Jack Kornfield

Monday Reflection: Focus on the Best

Never mention the worst.
Drop it out of your consciousness.
This practice will bring all of your powers to focus on the attainment of the best.
It will bring the best to you.

-Norman Vincent Peale

Monday Reflection-Our Thoughts

All that we are is the result of all that we have thought;
it is founded on our thoughts,
it is made up of our thoughts.
If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought,
happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

-The Dhammapada, verse 2
