    Sometime, somewhere you need to take something to be the truth. But if you cling to it too strongly, then even when the truth comes in person and knocks on

      Sometime, somewhere you need to take something to be the truth. But if you
      cling to it too strongly, then even when the truth comes in person and
      knocks on your door, you will not open it.

      BUDDHA

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Visualize someone to whom you feel very close, particularly someone who is
      suffering and in pain. As you breathe in, imagine you take in all their
      suffering and pain with compassion, and as you breathe out, send your
      warmth, healing, love, joy, and happiness streaming out to them.

      Now, gradually widen the circle of your compassion to embrace first other
      people to whom you also feel very close, then to those about whom you feel
      indifferent, then to those whom you dislike or have difficulty with, then
      even to those whom you feel are actively monstrous and cruel. Allow your
      compassion to become universal, and to enfold in its embrace all sentient
      beings, and all beings, in fact, without any exception.

      Message 785 of 785 , Aug 6, 2011

        If this elephant of mind is bound on all sides by the cord of mindfulness,
        All fear disappears and complete happiness comes.
        All enemies: all the tigers, lions, elephants, bears, serpents (of our emotions);
        And all the keepers of hell; the demons and the horrors,
        All of these are bound by the mastery of your mind,
        And by the taming of that one mind, all are subdued,
        Because from the mind are derived all fears and immeasurable sorrows.
