Zen is not some special state, it is our normal condition, silent, peaceful, awake, without agitation.
Act without expectation.
At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.
Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.
The general population doesn’t know what’s happening, and it doesn’t even know that it doesn’t know.
There is a beautiful and life-enhancing alternative outlook that offers insight, consolation, inspiration and meaning, which has nothing to do with religion, and everything to do with the best, most generous, most sympathetic understanding of human reality.
Learn to value yourself, which means: fight for your happiness.
It is both a burden and a blessing, to feel everything as deeply as i do.
Encountering sufferings will definitely contribute to the elevation of your spiritual practice, provided you are able to transform the calamity and misfortune into the path.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
