Mindfulness Monday – Light

Our light is our path — wonderful thought! And mindset.

“We have a light inside us.

The oil of the lamp is

our breathing. our steps,

and our peaceful smile.

Our practice is to the

light up the lamp.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

“Be a light unto yourself.”

~Jon Kabat-Zinn

“Find the light and

it will show you the path.

The path that is shown by

your own light is the

only path that is right.”

Mindfulness Monday – Shadow

I have been staying away from the cyberverse — so playing catch up with Wendy’s Mindfulness Mondays.

Picnic with Ants


“Don’t chase after your thoughts

as a shadow follows it’s object.

Find joy and peace in this very moment.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

“Put your thoughts to sleep,

do not let them cast a shadow

over the moon of your heart.

Let go of thinking.

~ Rumi

“If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts,

happiness follows them

like a never-departing shadow'”

~ Buddha
