Distraction wastes our energy, concentration restores it  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) When you’re wide open, the world is a good place  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) Fearful of wasting a second, we hoard time as if it were money  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) I call myself a meditation teacher rather than a spiritual teacher  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) When you’re wide open, the world is a good place  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) You are capable of so much more than we usually dare to imagine  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) We need the courage to learn from our past and not live in it  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) Mindfulness isn’t difficult, we just need to remember to do it  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) Its never too late to take a moment to look  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) Let the breath lead the way  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) True happiness is born of letting go of what is unnecessary  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) I will love myself as long as I never make a mistake  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) Let the power of intention lead the way  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) Loving kindness is the spirit of friendship toward yourself and others  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) In a situation of potential conflict, let compassion guide you  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) We are taught that revenge is strong and compassion is weak. We are taught that power is more important than love  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) While you are meditating, if your mind wanders, gently bring it back to the present moment  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) Effort is the unconstrained willingness to persevere through difficulty  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) To sense which gifts to accept which to leave behind is our path to discovering freedom  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) Dedicating some time to meditation is a meaningful expression of caring for yourself that can help you move through the mire of feeling unworthy of recovery. As your mind grows quieter and more spacious, you can begin to see self-defeating thought patterns for what they are, and open up to other, more positive options  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) In Buddhist teaching, ignorance is considered the fundamental cause of violence - ignorance... about the separation of self and other... about the consequences of our actions  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) It’s a rare and precious thing to be close to suffering because our society - in many ways - tells us that suffering is wrong. If it’s our own suffering, we try to hide it or isolate ourselves. If others are suffering, we’re taught to put them away somewhere so we don’t have to see it  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) We can learn the art of fierce compassion - redefining strength, deconstructing isolation and renewing a sense of community, practicing letting go of rigid us-vs.-them thinking - while cultivating power and clarity in response to difficult situations  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) In a single moment we can understand we are not just facing a knee pain, or our discouragement and our wishing the sitting would end, but that right in the moment of seeing that knee pain, we’re able to explore the teachings of the Buddha. What does it mean to have a painful experience? What does it mean to hate it, and to fear it?  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) In our usual mind state, we are continually activating the process that in Buddhist terminology is known as ‘bhava,’ which literally means ‘becoming.’ In this space of becoming, we are subtly leaning forward into the future, trying to have security based on feeling that we can hold on, we can try to keep things from changing  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) To remember non-attachment is to remember what freedom is all about. If we get attached, even to a beautiful state of being, we are caught, and ultimately we will suffer. We work to observe anything that comes our way, experience it while it is here, and be able to let go of it  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) Everyone loses touch with their aspiration, and we need the heart to return to what we really care about. All of this is based on developing greater lovingkindness and compassion  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) From the Buddhist point of view, it is true that emptiness is a characteristic of all of life - if we look carefully at any experience we will find transparency, insubstantiality, with no solid, unchanging core to our experience. But that does not mean that nothing matters  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) My ideal registration system would be an opt-out one, where every single person is registered once they turn 18. In Australia, I’m told, everyone is registered to vote and you pay a fine if you don’t vote  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes) We can have skills training in mindfulness so that we are using our attention to perceive something in the present moment. This perception is not so latent by fears or projections into the future, or old habits, and then I can actually stir loving-kindness or compassion in skills training too, which can be sort of provocative, I found  (Sharon Salzberg Quotes)
