"It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about."
"The really idle man gets nowhere.
The perpetually busy man does not get much farther."
Sir Heneage Ogilvie
Something precious is lost if you rush headlong into the details of life without pausing for a moment to pay homage to the mystery of life and the gift of another day.
It is not that anger and desire are inherently evil or that we should feel ashamed when they arise. It is a matter of seeing them as the delusions that they are: distorted conceptions that paint a false picture of reality. They are negative because they lead to unhappiness and confusion.
Being different isn't bad.
It means you're brave enough to be yourself.
