Meditations from Buddhist Tradition

Meditations from Buddhist Tradition

Live every act fully, as if it was your last.

Words have the power to destroy or heal.  When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.

Our own worst enemy cannot harm us as much as our unwise thoughts.  No one can help us as much as our own compassionate thoughts.

The heart is like a garden.  It can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love.  What seeds will you plant there?

Hatred never ceases by hatred; by love alone is it healed.  This is the ancient and eternal law.

If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.

In life, we cannot avoid change, we cannot avoid loss.  Freedom and happiness are found in the flexibility and ease with which we move through change.  In the end these things matter most: How well did you love?  How fully did you live?  How deeply did you learn to let go?
