What is your favourite mindful quote or poem?

It is so hard to choose a favourite poem that speaks to mindful awareness - there are many! So, I will share one that I newly discovered, just a couple of weeks ago:

Awakening Now by Danna Faulds

"The moment your eyes are open, seize the day.
Would you hold back when the Beloved beckons?
Would you deliver your litany of sins like a child’s collection of sea shells, prized and labeled?
“No, I can’t step across the threshold,” you say, eyes downcast.
“I’m not worthy, I’m afraid, and my motives aren’t pure.
I’m not perfect, and surely I haven’t practised nearly enough.
My meditation isn’t deep, and my prayers are sometimes insincere.
I still chew my fingernails, and the refrigerator isn’t clean.”
Do you value your reasons for staying small more than the light shining through the open door?
Forgive yourself.
Now is the only time you have to be whole.
Now is the sole moment that exists to live in the light of your true Self.
Perfection is not a prerequisite for anything but pain.
Please, oh please, don’t continue to believe in your disbelief.
This is the day of your awakening."

I'll start with my own made up quotes, though I just found a Looseleaf of 10 pages of valuable quotes; anyway, here's mine:

     "If you are emotionally stuck in the past with those stories, then your Amygdala has already been Hi-Jacked".

                                                        ~~~Rick Barber~~~~ "My intention today is, I will Focus on the Present".

      Hi,  I am a master's degree in Buddhist counseling postgraduate student, and I am looking for ideas for above mention concept. I am practicing mindfulness meditation, and I want to clarify and enrich this title for my final project. Please let me know your ideas and a path to explore this aspect. It will be excellent assistance for me.  Thanks, and stay safe!    With Metts, Lucky
    • Hi Dan, Thank you for your inquiry. This community is mindfulness-based, so we hope that what is shared is mindfulness related. Posts that sell products or services are not permitted and we also do not allow members to share links until they have established a strong presence in the community. You can read more about all of this and more on our About page - https://www.mindfulnessexercises.com/community/about/ Wishing you a mindful Monday!
    • Hello Gillian. thank you for reaching out to me. I have joined this community share.  I value my state of being and my vibration immensely and the vibrations I am experiencing recently are new to me. Although I wish to be of service I still require my full attention to sustain this energy and social networking is distracting to me so I hope you all can forgive my infrequent appearance. That being said I would like to know the policy of this community when it comes to prescribed meditations, breathwork, or other self healing or wellness modalities. I want to share my experiences as I believe my sharing can help others increase their own vibrations. I believe reality is shifting to a higher frequency and I believe the collective consciousness of humanity is meant to shift with it. The more of us shining the brighter the light. So I would like to appropriately share what I have learned to this community. Are there any restrictions regarding suggestions on energy work techniques that I should be aware of. I appreciate your time in consideration of mine. Thank you.  Dan
