Inspiring Quotes of the Week...
Commentary by Peter Shepherd
The more we work with the universal - the concept of unity and wholeness - the more everything makes sense. Parts have meaning when they are understood to be parts of a bigger picture. Let opposites coexist in you - like fear with love - without choosing one over the other.
If we can see who we really are, we can start to feel we are one with everything, which means we feel connected with life. We feel a love of what exists; we also feel compassion and want to be of service.
Meditation - especially when applied to mindfulness in everyday life - brings awareness of how our minds work, as we detach to a degree from our thoughts and emotions. We gain the freedom to choose whether or not to act on our thoughts and emotions. We learn to distinguish between objective reality and our mental and emotional dramas.

Behind our personality stands a presence that we do well to awaken to. For it is our true self, a being with beautiful qualities. And this is the case for all of us. As Leonard Jacobson said, "Gratitude, generosity and humility are inherent characteristics of one who is present."

It reaches the source of thought, where it becomes pure Being -- alert and aware but without an object of awareness, consciousness experiencing itself.
