Everyday Wisdom #39

By not being in conflict with yourself – by practising peace and compassion and acceptance – you are able to release yourself from suffering.

As you live without suffering and conflict, you allow yourself to be who you really are.

Free from unskillful thoughts and actions – both towards yourself and others.

With the absence of fear, aversion, greed and anger, you are left with a pure and beautiful heart.

The essence of who you truly are.

The quality of everything we do: our physical actions, our verbal actions, and even our mental actions, depends on our motivation. That’s why it’s important for us to examine our motivation in our day to day life. If we cultivate respect for others and our motivation is sincere, if we develop a genuine concern for others’ well-being, then all our actions will be positive.
