An Appreciation of Things

“A work of art is all about a sense of delight. It is an appreciation of things as they are, which produces an enormous spark. Something happens – clicks – and poet writes poems, painter paints pictures, musician makes music.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa

Become A Bridge

“Because you have joy and celebration in your practice, it does not feel like a burden to you. You are willing to become a rock or a bridge or a highway. You are willing to serve any worthy cause that might help, so that others could use you as a working basis for their enjoyment of sanity.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa

It Is In Your Mind

“If your mind is expansive and unfettered, you will find yourself in a more accommodating world, a place that’s endlessly interesting and alive. That quality isn’t inherent in the place but in your state of mind.”

~ Pema Chödron
