Meditation is not a hobby. It is important to address the problems of the world, of our society, to express our understanding through compassionate action. But if the world is truly to be a place of peace then we need to understand our own minds. Because what is happening "out there" is simply a manifestation of what is happening in the mind. ~Joseph Goldstein~
Five Rules For Happiness
Free your heart from hatred (forgive)
Free your mind from worry - most never happen
Live simply and appreciate what you have
~copied and among my special quotes~
The expect less is on my mind a lot. I cannot expect the attention I sometimes desire from my children. They have busy lives and mom chose to move to the woods.
Especially true through this last experience of shingles and sciatic nerve problem.
Guess I had a needy spirit.
Kaveri, your recent comment about my leaving the city and returning to my home place - touched my heart.
You are so talented with words...
"from city to country
external to internal
material to earth
fear to love"
Wherever you are on this planet
May you have a day filled with happiness
health, safety and peace.....
