Other quotes of Jack Kornfield

If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.
We do not have to improve ourselves; we just have to let go of what blocks our heart.
In the end, just three things matter: How well we have lived How well we have loved How well we have learned to let go
Have respect for yourself, and patience and compassion. With these, you can handle anything.
Let go of the battle. Breathe quietly and let it be. Let your body relax and your heart soften. Open to whatever you experience without fighting.
The basic principle of spiritual life is that our problems become the very place to discover wisdom and love.
To open deeply, as genuine spiritual life requires, we need tremendous courage and strength, a kind of warrior spirit.
