This is what practice is about: learning to stop believing that our deep-seated reactivity is who we are.

The practice life is all about learning to live from our true open-hearted nature.

We can learn to observe our thoughts – and our feelings, for that matter – as experiences that come and go in the mind.

It is through weakness and vulnerability that most of us learn empathy and compassion and discover our soul. – Desmond Tutu

“Buddhist teachings are not a religion, they are a science of mind.” — The Dalai Lama

The practice of equanimity is learning deeply what it means to let go.

When the spring bloom comes, does it start on the hilltops or down in the valleys? Growth begins first in the low places. If you remain humble, then there is the possibility to keep learning.

In order to learn we must first believe that we do not know.
