Today’s Teaching:


“You have the power to create. Your power is so strong that whatever you believe comes true. You are the way you are because that is what you believe about yourself. Your whole reality, everything you believe, is your creation.”

From: The Mastery of Love: A Practical Guide to the Art of Relationship
By Don Miguel Ruiz

Today’s Meditation:


“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”
~ Dalai Lama

This demonstration of compassion on Disability Day at Fenway Park will truly warm your heart.

3. David Weisman: Buddhism and Neuroscience
“So how does Buddhism do? Pretty well. Buddhism lays out the concept that there is no mind the way we tend to consider them (as we consider our self). In broad strokes, neuroscience and neurology agree.”
