You know those times when your mind is racing or completely blank. You can’t think clearly and you want to be focused. Mindfulness quotes can help you to restore order to your mind, a sense of serenity to your soul. Mindfulness is about focus. Mindfulness is about staying aware of, attached to, a line of thought. Mindfulness is also about focusing on an experience without distraction. Let’s look at some mindfulness quotes. You might want to save some of them.
Emotions come and go with lives of their own. They can roil like ocean waves, or calmly sparkle from sunshine. Only your response to those emotions is under your control.
“If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” – Dalai Lama
I once created a mindfulness quote that many acquaintances like to repeat: “It’s the small things that matter. They add up to be BIG things. Where would we be emotionally, and how could we manage, without little gestures that mean so much to us?”
“We can’t stop the waves, but we can learn to surf.”
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov shared many mindfulness quotes. They have inspired people for centuries:
“All new beginnings require that you unlock a new door.”
“Find a day for yourself-better yet, late at night. Go to the forest or to the field, or lock yourself in a room … You will meet solitude there. There you will be able to listen attentively to the noise of the wind first, to birds singing, to see wonderful nature and to notice yourself in it … and to come back to harmonic connection with the world and its Creator.”
“Get into the habit of singing a tune. It will give you new life and fill you with joy. Get into the habit of dancing. It will displace depression and dispel hardship.”
“Even if you can’t sing well, sing. Sing to yourself. Sing in the privacy of your home. But sing.”
“You are wherever your thoughts are, make sure your thoughts are where you want to be.”
“Let the good in me connect with the good in others, until all the world is transformed through the compelling power of love.”
“Seek the good in everyone, and reveal it, bring it forth.”
