Sacred Path

Two people have been living in you all your life.
One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating;
the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom
you have only rarely heard or attended to.
~ Sogyal Rinpoche

Knowing life is short, enjoy it day after day,
moment after moment.
It is through practicing and living through
a series of agreeable and disagreeable situations
that we realize full awakening.
~ Shunryu Suzuki

Hell is not punishment, it's training.
~ Shunryu Suzuki

What doesn't bend, breaks.

I can't control what thoughts come to mind.
But I can control what I do with them.

Awareness can be found in
the absence of thinking.

Pain deferred is pain amplified.
