Mindful Sip: Cherish

by mandy lipka

Found this gem in a list of 25 quotes for entrepreneurs at elephant journal: 

 

“Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.” ~ James Allen

You could commit to writing one page a night, which, over a year, is most of a book.

Mindful Sip: Say Yes

by mandy lipka

‎As the Buddha taught, when we fully face difficult emotions, the very emotions themselves will become our spiritual teachers, with the potential to make us more wise and compassionate. All we have to do is to be present and wholeheartedly say ‘yes’ to what is. / Ayya Santacitta Bhikkhuni
