I subscribe to a lot of email quote letters. I always read some new thing that makes a difference in my life.

So, I'm gonna start posting a quotation here daily. Feel free to read and respond, or post your own quotations.

FIRST ONE!

The next time you lose heart and you can’t bear to experience what you’re feeling, you might recall this instruction: change the way you see it and lean in. Instead of blaming our discomfort on outer circumstances or on our own weakness, we can choose to stay present and awake to our experience, not rejecting it, not grasping it, not buying the stories that we relentlessly tell ourselves. This is priceless advice that addresses the true cause of suffering—yours, mine, and that of all living beings. - Pema Chödrön (Taking the Leap)

In the tantric tradition there are different approaches or styles of action, and everybody does not have to be uniform. Tantra does not have a one-track mind. There are different kinds of relationships with things, and you can identify yourself with all or one of these. You can take pride in what you are, what you have, your basic nature. Tantra permits different aspects of you to shine through, rather than your having to be channeled into one basic set of characteristics. It allows your basic nature to come through. - Chögyam Trungpa The Lion's Roar.

Please do! Not everybody has time to read whole books, so I figure a paragraph every now and then that you stumble across would do some good.

Thanks for reading.

Connor replied the topic: Daily Spiritual Guidance:

"We spend 60% of conversations talking about ourselves. Why? Because it feels good. Using fMRI brain scans researchers from Harvard University showed that discussing our opinions and personality traits activate areas of the brain’s mesolimbic dopamine system -- which is associated with reward and motivation. Activation was greatest when people knew someone was listening to their disclosures, but it happened even when their self-confessions were private. While this may seem self-involved, there are benefits to it: sharing personal information can increase social bonds and enable teamwork -- both of which can promote happiness and even physical health. Share this post with friends and share something about yourself in the comments!" - Lumosity's Facebook page.
