What To Do Today – Keep a healthy mind by thinking for yourself, not the way you’ve been told to think.
Although there is no certainty about what lies ahead, people live with the hope that all will go well for them. It is impossible to fulfill our life when we are utterly discouraged. But if we manage to keep our hopes in the future alive, we will be able to overcome all sorts of difficulties and go on living. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama
Never get angry, even with someone who has deliberately and maliciously harmed you. You should be grateful to such a person for helping you to purify past negative actions, to increase your determination to be free from samsara and to develop love and compassion. ~ Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
I will say this is such great and true advice. Yet I cannot say I never get angry….but I do have less ‘reasons’ for anger which I attribute to reducing my ‘self’/ego.’
Suffering, in fact, can be helpful in many ways. It spurs your motivation and as many teachings point out, without suffering there would be no determination to be free from samsara. Sadness is an effective antidote to arrogance. ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
Egypt, May you flourish in peace and non-violence…May you know happiness and the causes of happiness, May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering…May you never be separated from the happiness that is free from suffering, May you abide in equanimity, free from attachment and detachment.
Egypt, It is incredible. And it brings chills to me…..the non-violence…the inter-connectedness of the internet world….what a powerful tool.
Egypt, With every tool…we create and we destroy…May the peace and non-violence that has been created live on for many years!
All that has passed is gone. Forgive all that still remains with you.
May all sentient beings be released from suffering.
