The soul loves to meditate, for in contact with Great Spirit lies its greatest joy. If, then you experience mental resistance during meditation, remember that reluctance to meditate comes from the ego; it doesn’t belong to the soul.
Leave the mind in its
natural, undisturbed state.
Don’t follow thoughts of
‘This is a problem, that is a
problem!’ Without labeling
difficulties as problems,
leave your mind in its
natural state. In this way,
you will stop seeing
miserable conditions as
Lama Zopa Rinpoche
To be spiritual means to be solid, calm, and peaceful, and to be able to look deeply inside and around us.
Thich Nhat Han
You get peace of mind not by thinking about it or imagining it, but by quietening and relaxing the restless mind. Your nature is absolute peace. You are not the mind. Silence your mind through concentration and meditation, and you will discover the peace of the Spirit that you are, and have always been.
What I am really saying is that you don’t need to do anything, because if you see yourself in the correct way, you are all as much extraordinary phenomena of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the stars, and the form of a galaxy. You are all just like that, and there is nothing wrong with you at all.
The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.
A negative attitude will send you down the road to unhappiness. It will absolutely happen, and it doesn’t matter what the problem. A positive attitude will put you back on The Path to inner peace and happiness. Again, it will absolutely happen, and it doesn’t matter what the problem.
Neale Donald Walsch
You are loved just for being who you are, just for existing. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Your shortcomings, your lack of self-esteem, physical perfection, or social and economic success— none of that matters. No one can take this love away from you, and it will always be here.
