Citações Sylvia Boorstein


„Estamos todos oscilando no meio do processo entre o que já aconteceu (que é apenas uma lembrança) e o que poderia acontecer (que é apenas uma idéia).

O agora é o único momento em que alguma coisa acontece. Quando ficamos atentos, sabemos o que está se passando em nossas vidas.“

„Mindfulness meditation doesn't change life. Life remains as fragile and unpredictable as ever. Meditation changes the heart's capacity to accept life as it is. It teaches the heart to be more accommodating, not by beating it into submission, but by making it clear that accommodation is a gratifying choice.“ Don't Just Do Something, Sit There: A Mindfulness Retreat with Sylvia Boorstein


„Life is painful, suffering is optional.“

„... every single act we do has theof causing pain, and every single thing we do has consequences that echo way beyond what we can imagine. It doesn't mean we shouldn't act. It means we should act carefully. Everything matters [p. 41].“ It's Easier Than You Think: The Buddhist Way to Happiness

„All losses are sad. The end of an important relationship is also a death. When people fall out of love with each other, or when what seemed like a solid friendship falls into ruin, the hope for a shared future--a hope that provided a context and a purpose to life--is gone. [p. 149]“ Happiness Is an Inside Job: Practicing for a Joyful Life

„... the moment in which the mind acknowledge 'This isn't what I wanted, but it's what I got' is the point at which suffering disappears. Sadness might remain present, but the mind... is free to console, free to support the mind's acceptance of the situation, free to allow space for new possibilities to come into view. [p. 29]“ Happiness Is an Inside Job: Practicing for a Joyful Life

„Pain is inevitable; lives come with pain. Suffering is not inevitable. If suffering is what happens when we struggle with our experience because of our inability to accept it, then suffering is an optional extra [p. 19].“ It's Easier Than You Think: The Buddhist Way to Happiness

„Everything is always changing.
"There is a cause-and-effect lawfulness that governs all unfolding experience.
"What I do matters, but I am not in charge. Suffering results from struggling with what is beyond my control. [pp. 27-28]“
Happiness Is an Inside Job: Practicing for a Joyful Life


„... you are in pain. Relax. Take a breath. Let's pay attention to what is happening. Then we'll figure out what to do. [p. 10]“ Happiness Is an Inside Job: Practicing for a Joyful Life

„... freedom of choice is possible. Life is going to unfold however it does: pleasant or unpleasant, disappointing or thrilling, expected or unexpected, all of the above! What a relief it would be to know that whatever wave comes along, we can ride it out with grace [p. 35].“ It's Easier Than You Think: The Buddhist Way to Happiness

„The Buddha taught complete honesty, with the extra instruction that everything a person says should be truthful and helpful.“

„May I meet this moment fully. May I meet it as a friend.“ Happiness Is an Inside Job: Practicing for a Joyful Life


„I want to feel deeply, and whenever I am brokenhearted I emerge more compassionate. I think I allow myself to be brokenhearted more easily, knowing I won't be irrevocably shattered [p. 59]“ It's Easier Than You Think: The Buddhist Way to Happiness

„... change and loss and sadness and grief are the shared lot of all human beings... we are all making our way from one end of life to the other hoping--for whatever intervals of time we can manage it--to feel safe and content and strong and at ease. [p.40]“ Happiness Is an Inside Job: Practicing for a Joyful Life

„Becoming aware of fragility, of temporality, of the fact that we will surely all be lost to one another, sooner or later, mandates a clear imperative to be totally kind and loving to each other always [p.119].“ It's Easier Than You Think: The Buddhist Way to Happiness

„Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated that that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.“
