Simply speaking

I found two quotations today that really distill the meditative approach down to the basics. Here's the first one:

In the final analysis, the hope of every person is simply peace of mind.

-- The Dalai Lama

And this is the other one:

There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.

-- Aldous Huxley

Those observations can help us let go of unnecessary complications if we let them.


  1. Religion is a waste of time, energy and money.
    Mainline protestantism is an irrelevance deserted by the children of its own members.
    Middle-class, middle aged and middle brow.
