The secret of beginning a life

The secret of beginning a life of deep awareness and sensitivity lies in our willingness to pay attention.

Our growth as conscious, awake human beings is marked not so much by grand gestures and visible renunciations as by extending loving attention to the minutest particulars of our lives.

Every relationship, every thought, every gesture is blessed with meaning through the wholehearted attention we bring to it.
