Mindfulness…is a state of recollection, of undistractedness, of concentration, of continuity and steadfastness of purpose, and of continually developing individuality.
She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in
Many people think excitement is happiness… But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace.

If there is any religion that could respond to the needs of modern science, it would be Buddhism.
