is not aimed at us. Even if there is no doubt the offender is talking to you, or interacting with you, what he says most likely has nothing to do with who you are or what you have done. It’s not personal; he doesn’t know you. You just happen to be a stage prop in an internal drama taking place in his mind.

Laughter is a pleasant sound, it spreads joy all around Whether you’re young or old, laughter can be like Magic to our souls, whenever we’re feeling sad Laughter can sustain us so that things don’t seem Quite so bad, if we give into laughter, it can be like A cure for something that seems impossible to endure So any time your spirits need a lift fill yourself With laughter and you will find, a much happier Person with a peaceful frame of mind.

Quote of the Day 28 Sept 2013 ~ Cultivation of Mindfulness

The Quote of the day... Cultivation of Mindfulness

WHEN we let go of wanting something else to happen in this moment, we are taking a profound step toward being able to encounter what is here now. If we hope to go anywhere or develop ourselves in any way, we can only step from where we are standing. If we don’t really know where we are standing—a knowing that comes directly from the cultivation of mindfulness—we may only go in circles, for all our efforts and expectations. So, in meditation practice, the best way to get somewhere is to let go of trying to get anywhere at all.
