Wake Up to Your Life

Wake Up to Your Life
Discovering the Buddhist Path of Attention
by Ken McLeod

"Somewhere in this process, you will come face-to-face with the sudden and shocking realization that you are completely crazy. Your mind is a shrieking, gibbering madhouse on wheels barreling pell-mell down the hill, utterly out of control and hopeless. No problem. You are not crazier than you were yesterday. It has always been this way and you never noticed." Henepola Gunaratana
"We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us." Marcel Proust
"It is a painful thing to look at your own trouble and know that you yourself and no one else made it." Sophocles
"Let's not forget that the little emotions are the great captains of our lives and we obey them without realizing it." Vincent van Gogh
"Think of all sentient beings as Buddha, but keep your hand on your wallet." Tibetan saying
"You can see a lot just by looking." Yogi Berra
