Gratitude spreads happiness. So open your eyes and look around the richness of creation around you. You are here now today. You are amidst this wondrous display. In silence and grace spend a moment to feel the interconnectedness between yourself and the entire universe. And whenever you experience this grace flow within you, you will find gratitude. 

 

Khandro Rinpoche

Wednesday

 

How we interpret information and our experiences of the world depends entirely on how much merit we have accumulated. For example, what does the word impermanent mean? On the grossest possible level, those who have very little merit believe that 'impermanent' means decay and death, or the changing seasons. Once we start to accumulate merit, though, our understanding becomes more subtle. Imagine you are experiencing a moment of happiness. If you have a little merit you will be able, to a certain degree, to interpret and understand 'impermanence' and watch your mood change from unhappiness to happiness and back again, making any disappointment or hope you might feel less intense.

 

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Thursday

 

If we can see that things are not truly real - that they are mere appearances whose true nature is beyond all concepts of what it might be - then our experience of both good and bad events in life will be open, spacious, and relaxed.

 

Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche

Friday

 

With realized persons, the subject, the object, and experience arise fully as the awareness wisdom of ultimate peace and openness.

No matter what you do, no matter what situation you are in - whether walking, sitting, eating or lying down - always suspend your attention within the nature of nondual awareness.
