Everything is contingent upon everything else…

People, animals, and other plants flourish, and give themselves in turn.

The Buddha suggested that human beings can get along best by following this natural way of things.

Giving creates happiness; greed creates misery.

We can’t always transform pain from meaningless suffering into a sense of spaciousness, but at least we can practice seeing into the layers of beliefs and resistance, that hold our suffering in place, thereby coming closer to gently opening to what is.

Good people do good things because of the good in their hearts.

Bad people do bad things because of the evil in their hearts.

Your words show what is in your heart.


Luke 6:45

Free time is of a different order than freedom.

Freedom, at least in the dharmic sense, depends on the quality of attention that we bring to our interactions.

Only to the extent that we can be fully present in our relationships with ourselves, with our children, and with each other, are we free.

Even very basic beginning practice, like mindfulness of the breath or sound, begins to relieve suffering, reduce our stress levels, and motivate us to practice more.
