Where to find the real Buddha

Look for Buddha outside your own mind,
and Buddha becomes the devil.


Dogen Zenji

Don’t be a Fool

Fools wait for a lucky day.

But every day is a lucky day
for an industrious man.


Gautama Buddha

Walk the path

No one saves us but ourselves.
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path.


Gautama Buddha

The idea of karma

People get into a heavy-duty sin and guilt trip, feeling that if things are going wrong,
that means that they did something bad and they are being punished.

That’s not the idea at all.

The idea of karma is that you continually get the teachings that you need to open your heart. To the degree that you didn’t understand in the past how to stop protecting your soft spot, how to stop armoring your heart, you’re given this gift of teachings in the form of your life, to give you everything you need to open further.


Pema Chodron

Path of the enlightened

The path of the enlightened one leaves no track,
it is like the path of birds in the sky.


Gautama Buddha

The reality of liberation

Nirvana manifests as ease,
as love,
as connectedness,
as generosity,
as clarity,
as unshakable freedom.

This isn’t watering down nirvana.
This is the reality of liberation that we can experience,
sometimes in a moment and sometimes in transformative ways that change our entire life.
