Grasping

You only lose what you cling to.


Gautama Buddha

Grasping at Self

All the violence,
fear, and suffering that exist in the world come from grasping at self.

What use is this great evil monster to us?


Shantideva

Let it be

Do not try to become anything.
Do not make yourself into anything.
Do not be a meditator.
Do not become enlightened.
When you sit, let it be.
What you walk, let it be.
Grasp at nothing.
Resist nothing.

If you haven’t wept deeply, you haven’t begun to meditate.


Ajahn Chah

Let go a little

If you let go a little,
you will have a little peace.

If you let go a lot,
you will have a lot of peace.
