The Power of the Mind

If we check carefully, we will realise that our day-to-day problems come not from unpleasant and difficult circumstances and people, but rather from our own negative way of viewing these situations. It is our habitual reactions to hardship, rather than the hardship itself, that disturb our peace of mind and rob us of the opportunity to experience real happiness.
Buddha’s teachings give us the wisdom to identify and let go of the perspectives that keep us stuck in habitual, negative patterns of thought. By developing the skill to authentically transform our mind through meditation we can change the way we view our self, others and the world around us, and in this way become truly flexible, light and happy in daily life.
