Buddhist Thought of the Day

Each time pain--the duality of positive and negative, good and evil--manifests, and we embrace it and receive it with the energy of mindfulness, then it will return to the depths of the mind a little bit weaker. Pain loses energy every time it is embraced in this way, because the energy of mindfulness is really the energy of a mother.
