Tuesday Afternoon Quotes

““What if I get it wrong?”

“What if it doesn’t work?”

“What if I’m left here alone?”

Just look over the edge of that. Look over the edge of ‘what if’ and let your mind open up and realize that we’ve been running away from phantoms. Examine the attitudes you have, like ‘What if I get it wrong?’ You’ve been getting it wrong all your life — it’s no big deal! Everybody’s getting it wrong. Everybody’s making mistakes. Everybody’s losing it. Blundering. Not noticing. Not being respectful, polite, kind, talking too long, not saying enough… Everybody’s getting it wrong. Why don’t we just practice forgiveness instead and get out of this trap? You forgive me and I’ll forgive you, okay?”

--Ajahn Sucitto

“Worry is a prayer to chaos.”

--Gabrielle Bernstein
