Think It This Way

“When someone deliberately harms you, you should be grateful to them for helping you to purify past negative karmas, to increase your determination to be free from samsara, and to remind you that how important it is to develop compassion and love.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

“We want to free the world from dictatorship, but many ordinary people including ourselves are functioning exactly like dictators in our own lives. We would like to possess our world, and we act in such a way that whatever we see around us has to be completely in accord with our preferences. We try everything to maintain the security of ‘me,’ of ‘myself’ – which is egohood. Through meditation, we have means to free ourselves from the dictatorship of egohood.”
