According to Buddha

Mindfulness is not just a word or a discourse by the Buddha, but a meaningful state of mind. It means we have to be here now, in this very moment, and we have to know what is happening internally and externally. It means being alert to our motives and learning to change unwholesome thoughts and emotions into wholesome ones. Mindfulness is a mental activity that in due course eliminates all suffering.

don’t you, forget about me
don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t
don’t you, forget about me

According to Buddha

How wonderful it would be, I thought, if only we could practice the teachings of the Buddha as he really taught them from his own experience – free from the clouds of religiosity that often surround them. Yet it’s difficult to distinguish the tools themselves from their cultural packaging.

According to Buddha

All the peace and happiness of the whole globe, the peace and happiness of societies, the peace and happiness of family, the peace and happiness in the individual persons’ life, and the peace and happiness of even the animals and so forth, all depends on having loving kindness toward each other.

According to Buddha

Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.

According to Buddha

If you want to understand suffering you must look into the situation at hand. The teachings say that wherever a problem arises it must be settled right there.

We don’t meditate to see heaven, but to end suffering.

According to Buddha

When somebody provokes your anger, the only reason you get angry is because you’re holding on to how you think something is supposed to be. You’re denying how it is. Then you see it’s the expectations of your own mind that are creating your own hell. When you get frustrated because something isn’t the way you thought it would be, examine the way you thought, not just the thing that frustrates you. You’ll see that a lot of your emotional suffering is created by your models of how you think the universe should be and your inability to allow it to be as it is.

but you tell me over and over and over again, my friend
ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction
 
and marches alone can’t bring integration
when human respect is disintegratin’
this whole crazy world is just too frustratin’

According to Buddha

A Native American grandmother was speaking to her grandson about violence and cruelty in the world and how it comes about. She said it was as if two wolves were fighting in her heart. One wolf was vengeful and angry, and the other wolf was understanding and kind. The young man asked his grandmother which wolf would win the fight in her heart. And the grandmother answered, “The one that wins will be the one I choose to feed.”

just then grandfather came out.
he was angry because peter had gone in the meadow.
“it is the dangerous place.
if a wolf should come out of the forest, then what would you do?”
but peter paid no attention to his grandfather’s words.
