A little kindness and gentleness toward yourself is a wiser and more skillful response to feeling threatened than any amount of analytical problem solving.

Our quiet, concentration, and awareness skills help us guide our mind the way we would like it to go.

Compassion enjoins us to respond to pain, and wisdom guides the skilfulness of the response.

The heart of skilful meditation is the ability to let go and begin again, over and over again.

“One can abandon the unskillful. If it were not possible, I would not ask you to do it.” – The Buddha

Meditation is a way to develop our ability to act with intention rather than just react out of emotion.

Developing compassion is like playing a musical instrument – it’s a skill that can be enhanced with dedicated practice.
