If you go to war with your mind, you will always be at war.
We come to the end of suffering, through suffering.
You will bring yourself the suffering you need to bring yourself so that you may awaken.
It is the rub that polishes the jewel, Enso Roshi says. Nobody ever gets to nirvana without going through samsara. Nobody ever gets to heaven, without going through hell. The center of all things, the truth, is surrounded by demons.
Hatred never ceases with hatred, but with love alone is healed.
To hate the hate was just more hate; to reject the rejection was just more rejection; to judge the judging, just more judging.
Life gives you exactly what you need to awaken.
Nothing needs to be done, and things get done.
Let whatever happens, be what needs to happen, so that I may awaken.
Can you allow yourself to be impaled on the present moment?
The mind is limitless, in its creations.
It is all, the unfolding. Neither good nor bad, my destiny.
Let one who seeks not stop seeking until that person finds.
When you love yourself, utterly and completely, all of yourself, what you will discover then is that you love others, all others, utterly and completely.
