An Autumn night …
… don’t think your life didn’t matter.
If moment by moment you can keep your mind clear, then nothing will confuse you.
Wanting nothing with all your heart
Stop the stream.
When the world dissolves
Everything becomes clear.
A dash of rain upon the lotus leaves,
But the leaves remain unmarked,
No matter how hard the raindrops beat.
Mind, be like the lotus leaves, Unstained by the world.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
You are the source
Of all purity and impurity.
Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
Spend some time alone every day.
-The Dalai Lama
Entering the forest he moves not the grass;
Entering the water he makes not a ripple.
Who shall discover the shining way of the law?
You shall, even as the man who seeks flowers
Finds the most beautiful, the rarest.
