Time is fleeting. Don’t hold back. Appreciate this precious life.

We can practice making lists of kind things people have done for us, rather than lists of complaints.

If we simply feel the miracle of being present, a kind of appreciation grows along with a kind of joy.

To be able to notice the less obvious beauty, to appreciate it, to change perspective for a time is a type of quiet, a way of rest.

The best way to create good karma with the least amount of effort is to rejoice in your good deeds and those of others. – Tsongkhapa

Forgiveness allows us to move beyond the past and appreciate the present.

Gratitude moves us away from the narrow-minded focus on fault and lack, and to the wider perspective of benefit and abundance.

It is the ability to see wonder, surprise and possibility in each experience and each encounter that is a core aspect of joy.

Every day, think as you wake up, ‘I am fortunate to be alive. I have a precious human life. I am not going to waste it.’

When we enter the present moment deeply, our regrets and sorrows disappear, and we discover life with all its wonders.

When you go home to the present moment, you touch the wonders of life that are inside you and around you.

Let go of the stream of distress and embrace life fully in your arms.

When mind and body are together, suddenly we’re in the here and now, and we can live our life deeply.

If we want to fully enjoy life’s gifts, we must practice mindfulness at every turn; whether brushing our teeth, cooking breakfast, or driving to work.
