Wherever there is a reference point, there's a poisonous View; Wherever there is fixation, there's said to be a treacherous path of Meditation; Wherever there is adopting and rejecting, there is faulty Action; Wherever there is a goal in mind, the Result will be hindered; Simply remain in a state of non-distraction, free of clinging and grasping. NYOSHUL KHEN RINPOCHE.

His Holiness has just successfully completed the 33rd Kalacakra empowerment in Ladakh. All went smoothly with over 160,000 people in attendance. Nevertheless, although we are all the same in not wanting problems and wanting a peaceful life, we tend to create a lot of problems for ourselves. Encountering those problems, anger develops and overwhelms our mind, which leads to violence. A good way to counter this and to work for a more peaceful world is to develop concern for others. Then our anger, jealousy and other destructive emotions will naturally weaken and diminish. Emaho for this precious advice from the master.

One day Buddha was walking through a village. A very angry and rude young man came up and began insulting him. “You have no right teaching others,” he shouted. “You are as stupid as everyone else. You are nothing but a fake.” Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man “Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?” The man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered, “It would belong to me, because I bought the gift.” The Buddha smiled and said, “That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself.” “If you want to stop hurting yourself, you must get rid of your anger and become loving instead. When you hate others, you yourself become unhappy. But when you love others, everyone is happy.” ―

How Long It Takes to Form a New Habit

<i>“We are what we repeatedly do,”</i> Will Durant observed in summarizing Aristotle. <i>“Could the young but realize how soon they will become mere walking bundles of habits, they would give more heed to their conduct while in the plastic state,”</i> William James wrote. But how, exactly, do we rewire our habits …

"Calm water is simply water and so are turbulent waves. No difference whatsoever exists between their nature. Likewise, the mind being still is just one's concept. If it makes thoughts and thinks, that is also just one's concept. Therefore, making distinctions between stillness and occurence serves no purpose. What is important, on the other hand, is to look into the essence of that which creates concepts like stillness. Look into the essence of that which thinks, 'Now there are thoughts.' Then, one should just remain in thatness, in ordinary mind. That is the most essential." ~Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
