A Thought for Today

As we give ourselves to the practice of mindfulness, wisdom, and compassion, our habitual patterns of attachment and separation are seen for what they are: painful and unnecessary mistakes... We can begin to live in a way that enables our hearts to include rather than exclude, to open rather than constrict, to go forward with energy of lovingkindness rather than held back by illusion of separation.

— Sharon Salzberg, "Lovingkindness"
