Slogans to remember

Charlotte Alexandre sent me a list of slogans today. Two I particularly like are these:
The heaviest thing I can carry is a grudge.

One thing I can give and still my word.
And as many meditation participants have heard me say, the most important spiritual practice of all is to keep your word to yourself. Many people understand that they need to keep their word to other people but think it doesn't matter if they break their word to themselves. Making needed or wanted changes is only possible if we can keep our word to ourselves.
