The intentional cultivation of kindness, joy, compassion, and equanimity is an antidote to the habits and impulses of greed, hatred, and delusion.

We can choose to transform our minds so that they embody love, or we can allow them to develop habits and false concepts of separation.

Mindfulness has the effect of dissolving habit, one moment at a time.

Just because many of the habit patterns that create suffering have a long history does not mean they have an equally long future.
