Let go. Feel peace

 Do everything with a mind that lets go.  Do not expect any praise or reward If you let go a little, you experience a little peace.  If you let go a lot, you experience a lot of peace.  If you let go completely, you will know complete peace and freedom Your struggle with the world will have come to an end." ~ Ajahn Chah

Formulating intentions that lead to happiness

  I recently read part of this book and I highly recommend it .  I especially like the subtitle :  My Yoga of Self Acceptance.  That is really what Yoga is all about isn't it ?   not how far or deep you can go into a pose.   As a student of Buddhism I like to share  snippets of articles that I read  in books and  magazines like the quote that follows from tricycle:  We spread thoughts of goodwill for all the world, that we don’t wish anyone any harm.

Or they would never leave, and I would get “stuck” in them forever, sucked into their dark heart, no way out.  I feared “losing myself” in feelings. I feared my own fear. I had anxiety about having anxiety. I was angry with my own anger. Like many, I believed that I had dark, sinful, dangerous energies inside of me, and that I had to avoid these ‘demons’ at all costs. This was all
