July Contemplation

“We are unlikely to wake in the morning and determine that this is a good day to be anxious, aversive, or judgmental. It can be deeply uncomfortable to see how impulsive and habitual many of our reactions and patterns are… Kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity are a quality of mindfulness - the antidote to emotional and psychological habit. Experientially we come to understand that mindfulness and habit cannot coexist.  Our times of being lost in habit are the most unconscious moments in our lives and often our moments of greatest reactivity and pain. Mindfulness has the effect of dissolving habit, one moment at a time. We learn we can through mindfulness and intention make an awakened heart our home and bring habit and reactivity to an end...This liberation is one of the most priceless gifts we can offer to ourselves and one another.”

Christina Feldman, in "Boundless Heart: The Buddha’s Path of Kindness, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity"
