Sending kind thoughts--from the heartfulness lessons

May you be happy, may you be healthy and strong, may things come easy for you today, and may you feel peaceful and calm.

"Mindfulness helps us defuse stress, experience greater tranquility, find a sense of wholeness, strengthen our relationships, and face our fears.  Mindfulness helps sharpen focus, lower blood pressure, and reduce chronic pain.  Mindfulness helps protect the brain against aging and improves our capacity to learn new things.  And it's as easy as sitting down and taking a breath." (Alice Walker)
