Instead of trying to promote or defend ourselves, we can base our lives on something more powerful and trustworthy—our basic goodness.

The benefits we gain from those fleeting moments of "mindfulness" are pretty astounding - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually ... we get better and better!

"Human dignity is not based on monetary wealth. Affluent people may spend a great deal of money making their home luxurious, but they may be creating artificial luxury. Dignity comes from using your inherent human resources, by doing things with your own bare hands - on the spot, properly and beautifully. You can do that; even in the worst of situations, you can still make your life elegant. ~~~ Chögyam Trungpa (Sacred Path of the Warrior)

Remember that: "When you awaken your heart, you find to your surprise that your heart is empty. ... if you put your hand through your rib cage and feel for it, there is nothing there but tenderness. You feel sore and soft, and if you open your eyes to the rest of the world, you feel tremendous sadness... It occurs because your heart is completely open, exposed. It is the pure raw heart. ... It is this tender heart of a warrior that has the power to heal the world."    (Chogyam Trungpa)

In Buddhist tradition, when we make a genuine connection with ourselves, we also begin to respect the source of wisdom, a teacher. (…) Obviously, there will be resistance to allowing someone to come into your world and inject something into your existence. (…) When that particular element, which is your buddha nature, is awakened in your being, strangely enough you think it is a foreign element in your system. ~ Chogyam Trungpa
