And today we hear from the Dali Lama! It’s deep!
“For as long as space endures, and for as long as living beings remain, Until then may I too abide to dispel the misery of the world.”
“Visualize every being as your own beloved mother or as another person for whom you have the utmost affection, someone who, for you embodies great kindness. Call up the feelings of affection that arise with regard to that person and then extend those feelings to every other being. Perceive that each being has been equally kind and loving to you.”
“How are we to guard the mind? We should use attentiveness to watch our thoughts and mindfulness to judge whether we are acting correctly. With these two we have the means to annihilate all adverse conditions.”
“Reflection on how everything is illusory and without a true existence prevents arrogance from arising. Opinionated views need strong wisdom as their remedy. In order to discard disturbing emotions you must follow the path of wisdom.”
