your beautiful mind
As we encounter new experiences with a mindful and wise attention, we discover that one of three things will happen to our new experience: it will go away, it will stay the same, or it will get more intense. whatever happens does not really matter. - Jack Kornfield (A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life)
"Every time we inhale, we breathe in 10²² atoms, including approximately one million of the same atoms of air inhaled by everyone who has ever lived on this planet. Every time we exhale, we return these atoms to the atmosphere to be renewed not just for those living on the earth right now but also for all future generations. Just being aware of these simple facts can have a profound impact on your breath and on your sense of yourself."
