stop struggling

papaji
 

Milarepa,

the twelfth-century Tibetan

yogi who sang wonderful songs about

the proper way to meditate, said that the mind

has more projections than there are dust motes in a

sunbeam and that even hundreds of spears couldn’t put

an end to that. As meditators we might as well stop struggling

against our thoughts and realize that honesty and humor

are far more inspiring and helpful than any

kind of solemn religious striving

for or against

anything.

 

Pema Chodron

 

know that enough is enough

said dagdeviren

When

the world practices Tao,

horses fertilize the fields. When

the world ignores Tao,

horses are bred for

war.

 

There is no

greater calamity than

desire, no greater curse than greed.

Know that enough is enough,

and you’ll always have

enough.

burn up & cool into ashes

muhammad ali portrait - Version 2

on this day a king was born

 

It’s simple 

to become a sage: all

that’s required is to burn up,

 die, and cool into

ashes.

 

Rise early, 

then, and set fire to

all you think and feel and 

believe. Look beyond the smoke 

of that pit into what is left: 

emptiness filled with 

emptiness. 

 

Breathe it in. 

Pour it out. Circulating 

the Oneness without stopping, 

endlessly renewing your determination, 

working steadily day after day and

year upon year, you’ll find 

yourself alert, rested, 

illuminated.
