We don’t need more money,
we don’t need greater success or fame,
we don’t need the perfect body or even the perfect mate—right now.
At this very moment,
we have a mind,
which is all the basic equipment we need to achieve complete happiness.
The XIV Dalai Lama
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else;
you are the one who gets burned.”
Conquer the angry man by love.
Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness.
Conquer the miser with generosity.
Conquer the liar with truth
But what should we do with terrorists?
People who really have their minds on the Way.
Do not forget work on the fundamental.
No matter what they are doing.
Yet if they still distinguish this work from ordinary activities,
even as they do them together, they will naturally be concerned
about being distracted by activities and forgetting the meditation work.
This is because of viewing things as outside the mind.
Look for Buddha outside your own mind,
and Buddha becomes the devil.
