Starting where you are

Spring and its increasing daylight is a great opportunity to refresh our perspective. By setting out on a kind of expedition into the mind, we can recognise the old ruts in which we may be stuck and take steps to free and lighten ourselves. 
Each of us literally chooses, by his ways of attending to things, what sort of a universe he shall appear to himself to inhabit.
 —William James 

Why Meditate?

"We often focus exclusively on outer conditions. We think: if only we can shift these outer conditions, then everything will be fine. However, our control of external circumstances is limited, transitory and often illusory. On the other hand, we tend to neglect the ways we translate outer conditions into either happiness or misery. That is the power of the mind, which is why it is desirable to cultivate an optimal way of being." —Matthieu Ricard in Why Meditate, part of Wisdom Compassion and Genuine Happiness
