“What happens to you is much less important than how you react to what happens to you. That determines your life.”
Wherever you go, there you are.
Taking the time to reflect can greatly enrich your practice. You might realize you can do more of what you’re doing right and learn how to improve weak areas. Undoubtedly, this will expedite progress.
“…what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
“It’s not your job to like me. It’s mine.”
“See if you can catch yourself complaining, in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always non-acceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge.”
“If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.” Eckhart Tolle
