There are two kinds of suffering. There is the suffering
you run away from, which follows you everywhere.
And there is the suffering you face directly,
and in doing so become free.

all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities:

Give yourself a break....Park your car somewhere;
just sit; just be. You begin to pick up on clouds,
sunshine and weather, the mountains, your past.

You begin to pick up on a lot of things. Just let 
them pass like the chatter of a brook as it hits the rocks.
We have to give ourselves some time to be.

~ Chogyam Trungpa

When you get out of the driver's seat, 
you find that life can drive itself,
that actually life has always been driving itself.

Life begins to flow, and you 
never know where it will take you.

Being aware of your breath forces you 
into the present moment.
Whenever you are conscious of the breath,
you are absolutely present.

When we walk to the edge of all the light we have
and take the step into the darkness of the unknown,
we must believe that one of two things will happen.

There will be something solid for us to stand on
 or we will be taught to fly.

~ Patrick Overton

think of what a precious privilege
it is to be alive - to breathe,
to think, to enjoy, to love.

All things are in the universe,
and the universe is in all things:

We may go to the moon, 
but that's not very far.
The greatest distance we have 
to cover still lies within us.
