Mindfulness Monday – Pain

Strong words for weakened situations — pain does that to you. Mindfulness to handle the pain.

“Radical acceptance means feeling sorrow and pain
without resisting.
It means feeling desire or dislike
without judging ourselves
or being driven to act on it.”

~Tara Brach

“Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behavior.
You are beneath the thinker.
You are the mental noise.
You are the love and joy beneath the pain.”

~ Eckhart Tolle

Mindfulness Monday – Buddha

Wendy’s mindfulness speaks strongly to me. These are the words I need to heed.

Picnic with Ants


“The way is not the sky.
The way is in the heart.”


“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”


“Do not dwell in the past,
do not dream of the future,
concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

Mindfulness Monday – Loss

Words on loss — an emotion we all need to come to terms with at some point. Some, more than others.

“Everything that has a beginning, has an ending.
Make your peace with all that and all will be well.”

~ Buddha

“Compassion invites us to open our heart
to everyone who experiences
joy and loss,
pleasure and pain,
hope and despair.
This includes ourselves.

~Heather Strong, Mindfulness and Grief
