if you thought of it as like
the mountain cherry blossoms
which bloom and fade in a day.

We all derive from the same source. 
There is no mystery about the origin of things.
We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians;
we have only to open up, 
only to discover what is already there.

~ Henry Miller

Go deeper...
Past thoughts into silence.
Past silence into stillness.
Past stillness into the heart.
Let love consume all that is left of you.

Maybe happiness is this: not feeling 
like you should be elsewhere,
doing something else,
being someone else.

As your faith is strengthened you will find that 
there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, 
that things will flow as they will, and 
that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit.

Daily Zen - Thursday, November 17


When you've hit bottom in your life and are suffering deeply,
that's the time to be strong. Don't give up; instead, look at yourself and say, "Enough is enough. I won't get caught 
in this pattern again. Today is the day it ends."

~ Dzogchen Ponloe Rinpoche
