Appreciate Whatever Exists

“What we see doesn’t have to be pretty; we can appreciate anything that exists. There is some principle of magic in everything. Something living is taking place in everything.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa

“Insight brings love, and love is not possible without insight, understanding. If you do not understand, you cannot love. This insight is direct understanding, not just a few notions or ideas. In meditation, we allow ourselves to be shined on by the light of that insight.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh
