Blessing

“Try to bring all your experience into the context of blessing. If you can train your mind this way, you will have no obstacles in life. When your situation is easy and pleasant, see it as blessing, without attachment. When you are going through suffering, see that as blessing too. If you fall ill, recognize that illness is blessing, that pain purifies you of harmful past karmas. Keep in mind that many other beings are suffering in the same way as you are, and pray that your pain may liberate them all from suffering. In this way, illness can teach us compassion.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
