    "Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time -- like to have a friend takes time."

    Re: Quotes on Mindfulness

    A belligerent samurai, an old Japanese tale goes, once challenged a Zen master to explain the concept of heaven and hell. The monk replied with scorn, "You're nothing but a lout -- I can't waste my time with the likes of you!"

    His very honor attacked, the samurai flew into a rage and, pulling his sword from its scabbard, yelled "I could kill you for your impertinence."

    "That," the monk calmly replied, "is hell."

    Startled at seeing the truth in what the master pointed out about the fury that had him in its grip, the samurai calmed down, sheathed his sword, and bowed, thanking the monk for the insight.

    "And that,"said the monk "is heaven."

    The sudden awakening of the samurai to his own agitated state illustrates the crucial difference between being caught up in a feeling and becoming aware that you are being swept away by it. Socrates's injunction "Know thyself" speaks to the keystone of emotional intelligence: awareness of one's own feelings as they occur."

    "Feeling good about what we do for a living depends more on our moment-to-moment experiences than it does on prestige, status, or pay. Being present is its own reward and offers benefits of both empowerment and integration."

    ~ Sharon Salzberg's Real Happiness at Work

    Re: Quotes on Mindfulness

    “We chase extraordinary moments instead of being grateful for ordinary moments until hard **** happens. And then in the face of really hard stuff — illness, death, loss — the only thing we’re begging for is a normal moment.”

    Re: Quotes on Mindfulness

    "All of practice, whether in therapy or in Zen practice, can be said to come down to these two basic insights: (1) There's nothing to escape, and (2) there's nothing to gain."

    How To Actually Concentrate

    "There’s a saying in mindfulness, name it to tame it. If you can name a difficult experience, your brain can begin to regulate that feeling in your body."

    Re: Quotes on Mindfulness

    "Sometimes, feelings of sadness and grief, once the distortions have been eliminated, are are the experiences that can wake us up, and provide the profound sense of meaning we are craving in our lives. The highest human experience, perhaps, is the compassion we sometimes feel for ourselves and others who are suffering. In fact, this may be the true meaning of spirituality."

    ~ David Burns
