Mindfulness Monday – Pain

Reblogged to save it — pain is the constant isn’t it — physical, mental, emotional.

Picnic with Ants


“Do not resist your pain.
Surrender to the grief, despair, fear, loneliness,
or whatever form the suffering takes.
Witness it without labelling it mentally.
Allow it to be there.
Embrace it.
Then see how the miracle of surrender transmutes
deep suffering into deep peace.”

~ Eckhart Tolle

“With mindfulness we have the choice of
responding with compassion to the pain
of craving, anger, fear and confusion.
Without mindfulness we are stuck in the
reactive pattern and identification that
will inevitably create more suffering and confusion.”

~ Noah Levine

Mindfulness Monday – Forgetfulness

Forgetfulness; so often the desire to forget, to allow all the disappear. And a reminder of what remembrance holds for us.
