Present Moment…

“Do not encumber your mind with useless thoughts. What good is it to brood over the past and fret about the future? Dwell in the simplicity of the present moment. Live in harmony with the dharma. Make it the heart of your life and experience. Be the master of your own destiny.”
~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

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. ~ Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

If we have to make a choice…

If we had to make a choice between outer pleasure, comfort and peace, and inner freedom and ultimate happiness, we should choose inner peace. If we could find that within, then the outer would take care of itself. ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, “Invisible Realities”

Develop Confidence

We should develop confidence that the nature of samsara is impermanent, and start practicing – right now. We might plan to live for fifty years and spend twenty-five years working and twenty-five years practicing dharma, but it is not even sure whether we will live for twenty-five years. Death is always waiting for you. ~ Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

A bonfire in a strong wind

Your practice should be strengthened by the difficult situations you encounter, just as a bonfire in a strong wind is not blown out, but blazes even brighter. ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, “Teachings on the Nature of Mind and Practice.”
