Mindfulness provides a way to discern those patterns of mind that serve us and those patterns of mind that create and perpetuate suffering.

Our thinking will often reflect our mood and our mode of mind, not what is “actually” here or who we actually are. Thoughts are not facts.

If optimism is a way of looking at life and happiness a condition that can be cultivated, one might as well get down to work without further delay.

The root of wisdom lies in observing our own mind.  – Gönpawa (11th century)
