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.

Monday Reflection: Pure Mind

The pure nature of mind
-emptiness, lucidity, and intelligence without limit-
has always been inside us.

Monday Reflection-Present Moment

Do not encumber your mind with useless thoughts
What good does it do to brood on the past or anticipate the future?
Remain in the simplicity of the present moment.

-Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Monday Reflection

To think of the immense wall of potential hidden deep within our being,
to understand that the nature of mind is fundamental purity and kindness,
and to mediate on its luminosity, will enable you to develop self-confidence and courage

-H.H. The Dalai Lama
