Via Daily Dharma / April 25, 2016: Mind and the Weather

Ordinarily, our minds are like flags in the wind, fluttering this way and that, depending on which way the wind blows. Even if we don’t want to feel angry, jealous, lonely, or depressed, we’re carried away by such feelings and by the thoughts and physical sensations that accompany them. We’re not free; we can’t see other options, other possibilities.

—Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, "The Aim of Attention"
