Spiritual practice

When you say “I am”, don’t append a subject complement, that is, an identifier, e.g., father, son, doctor, lawyer, etcetera, ad infinitum. Just put a period on it and see how that feels.

OMG. Again

The mind presents us with various problems that demand resolution right now. Well, not this instant but, you know, top of the list. These are not our problems. These are the mind’s problems.

Peace of mind

Peace is a state of mind, not a political achievement. It’s the absence of thought, not the presence of a prescribed social order. A peaceful mind is quiet, still, mirror-like. Mirrors are indifferent to what they reflect.
