Monday Reflection: Gratitude Melts Barriers

When we feel true gratitude,
whether toward particular people or toward life,
metta (lovingkindness) will flow from us naturally.
When we connect with another person through gratitude,
the barriers that separate begin to melt.

Monday Reflection: Listen to the Words

Learning itself is an art.

When we listen with a still and concentrated mind,
it’s possible to actually be responsive to what the words are saying.
Sometimes deep insights come in a flash, unexpectedly.
