“When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: the people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous and surly. They are like this because they can't tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own - not of the same blood and birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me. No one can implicate me in ugliness. Nor can I feel angry at my relative, or hate him. We were born to work together like feet, hands and eyes, like the two rows of teeth, upper and lower. To obstruct each other is unnatural. To feel anger at someone, to turn your back on him: these are unnatural.” 


 Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Today's Maku mozo! 

 

 

Just know how to put all mental activity to rest and thus achieve

tranquility. Certainly do not begin by thinking things out and end up in

perplexity.

 

-Huang Po

 

 

 

The truth beyond mind cannot be grasped by any faculty of mind; the

meaning of non-action cannot be understood in compulsive activity; to

realise the meaning of non-action and beyond mind, cut the mind at its

root and rest in naked awareness.

 

-Tilopa

 

 

 

If you were able to put a stop to the mentality in which every thought is

running after something, then you would be no different from a Zen master

or a buddha.

 

-Lin-chi

 

And these. It's all about living in the moment. (note I didn't say "for the moment")
