Flower of the Day: 06/28/14

“Some people believe that they need to use effort to quiet down their minds, but this effort will only further agitate the mind. It is not necessary to do anything other than increase one’s perception by being whole in action and fully present. Then, when the thoughts come, they will simply pop like bubbles in the air. If one is able to develop presence, then the situation or place one finds oneself in doesn’t matter: nothing will shake one’s serenity.”

Understand Your Mind | June 28, 2014

Just understand your mind; how it works, how attachment and desire arise, how ignorance arises, and where emotions come from. It is sufficient to know the nature of all that; that alone can bring you happiness and peace. Thus, your life can change completely; everything turns upside down. What you once interpreted as horrible can become beautiful.
—Lama Yeshe, “Your Mind is Your Religion”
