Spiritual Growth Articles


On life's journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him.”  - Buddha

The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers. -Thich Nhat Hanh

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”  -Jon Kabat-Zinn
