Don’t cling to anything and don’t reject anything.
Let come what comes,
and accommodate yourself to that, what ever it is.
If good mental images arise, that is fine.
If bad mental images arise, that is fine too.
Look on all of it as equal,
and make yourself comfortable
with whatever happens.
Don’t fight with what you experience,
just observe it all mindfully.

Although you may understand the explanations,
if you are still suffering because of problems,
you clearly do not understand the true nature
of your mind, your body, and your senses.

The Buddha’s teachings on causes and their results
makes it clear that accepting responsibility for
our actions is the foundation for personal well-being and fulfillment.
Denying your shortcomings
and blaming the world for your discontent
keeps you mired in unhappiness.
Bad things happen to everyone.
As long as you blame your parents or society
for your problems,
you give yourself an excuse not to change.
The moment you accept responsibility for your situation,
even though others may have contributed to it,
you begin to move in a positive direction.


See everyone as Buddha.
This purifies the mind
of ignorance
and arrogance.


You are right where you are supposed to be.

I wish I were further along the path...
I can see where I should be
I know how it feels
why is it so hard to get to?
relax....... and appreciate what is..........
