Letting Go - Quotes for Considerations

Quote found at Tales of Tanglewood
"Just think of the trees: they let the birds perch and fly, with no intention to call them when they come and no longing for their return when they fly away. If people's hearts can be like the trees, they will not be off the Way." Langya

"What happens
to you
does not matter;
what you BECOME through
those experiences
all that is significant.
This is the true MEANING of life."
Daniel Levin

"Cultivating a generous spirit starts with mindfulness. Mindfulness, simply stated, means paying attention to what is actually happening; it's about what is really going on." - Nell Newman

Love 'em! I especially like the one about the trees. That's an excellent lesson. "Entering the stream" as they call it.

Great quotes! And, I love the puppies!

Chani and Mama Zen,
Thanks to both of you for stopping by at this busy season. I'm so far behind I don't know how (or if) I'll catch up, but I'm doing what I can and it has to be good enough. Quotes like these help me stay centered ... and the puppies were just too cute!
Hugs and blessings to you both,

The quotes are fantastic - mindfulness ... so good to be tuned in, eh?

Yez … I thought you’d enjoy them. Puppies are pretty special always, but these two remind me of Molly as a baby-dog. Welcome back. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family. Ah … mindfulness … definitely good to “tune in” each moment (or whenever possible).
Hugs and blessings,
