As Robert Adams reveals it:DO NOT LET CALAMITY RULE YOU"You have to begin to identify with the Real Self. You have to begin to let goof all the false beliefs, conceptions, dogmas and be yourself. Be the Selfyou've always been. Be the Buddha. Be Krishna. You have that quality deep withinyou. Wake up. Do not let calamity rule you any longer. Know yourself. Do not usethe mind to react to conditions. Learn to be the observer."
There is no controlling life.Try corralling a lightning bolt,containing a tornado. Dam astream and it will create a newchannel. Resist, and the tidewill sweep you off your feet.Allow, and grace will carryyou to higher ground. The onlysafety lies in letting it all in -the wild and the weak; fear,fantasies, failures and success.When loss rips off the doors ofthe heart, or sadness veils yourvision with despair, practicebecomes simply bearing the truth.In the choice to let go of yourknown way of being, the wholeworld is revealed to your new eyes.- Danna Faulds
Let go of what has passed.Let go of what may come.Let go of what is happening now.Don't try to figure anything out.Don't try to make anything happen.Relax, right now, and rest.Tilopa,
The armor we erect around our hearts causes a lot of misery. But don't be deceived, it's very transparent. The more vivid it gets, the more clearly you see it, the more you realize that this shield - this cocoon - is just made up of thoughts that we churn out and regard as solid. It's not made of iron. The armor is not made out of metal. In fact, it's made out of passing memory.Pema Chodron
People are very misguided if think that meditation is only a psychological matter.
A very good analogy: As a fish when pulled out of water and cast on land throbs and quivers, even so is this mind agitated.
The Truth is always simple.
Sadly, the mind isn't.
