A ridiculous comedy ~ Ryokan
http://justdharma.com/s/6my6j

Where there is beauty, there is ugliness.
When something is right, something else is wrong.
Knowledge and ignorance depend on each other.
It has been like this since the beginning.
How could it be otherwise now?
Wanting to toss out one and hold onto the other
makes for a ridiculous comedy.
You must still deal with everything ever-changing,
even when you say it's wonderful.

Working with others makes you humble ~ Chögyam Trungpa
http://justdharma.com/s/7ewc8

Humbleness comes from working with others. When you work with others, you realize the need to be patient, to give space and time to others to develop their own understanding of goodness and bravery. If you are frantic and try to push your understanding onto others, then nothing happens except further chaos. Knowing that, you become extremely humble and patient in working with others.

Entering the buddhist path ~ Mingyur Rinpoche

When you enter the path of Buddhist practice you’re ending an abusive relationship with yourself.

Learning to live with your sanity ~ Chögyam Trungpa
http://bit.ly/1lFNyMP

Familiarization is one of the five strengths that allow us to practice our bodhisattva discipline of helping others throughout our whole life. This process is analogous to falling in love. When somebody mentions your lover's name, you feel both pain and pleasure. You feel turned on to that person's name and to anything associated with him or her. In the same way, the natural tendency of mindfulness-awareness, especially when egolessness has already evolved in your mind, is to flash on the dharma. You familiarize yourself with it. In other words, you no longer regard dharma as a foreign entity, but you realize that dharma is a household thought, a household word, and a household activity. Each time you uncork your bottle of wine or unpop your Coca-Cola can or pour yourself a glass of water -- whatever you do becomes a reminder of the dharma. You cannot get rid of it; it becomes a natural situation. So you learn to live with your sanity.

Diligence ~ Padmasambhava
http://bit.ly/1nFh21Q

To be diligent doesn't mean to engage in various restless activities; it means to exert oneself in the means of leaving samsaric existence behind.

The essence of discipline ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
http://justdharma.com/s/ga8j4

In essence, discipline is to have a peaceful, self-controlled and altruistic mind.

Living in harmony ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
http://justdharma.com/s/4wlyg

Many of us lead family lives. At most, the members of a family stay together for the duration of a single lifetime, often much less. While that fleeting moment of being together still lasts, we should try to remain in perfect harmony with each other, while observing the Dharma as much as possible. Night and day, let us turn our minds toward goodness, love, and compassion. Doing a single prostration, saying a simple prayer, contemplating the nature of the mind for an instant are seeds that lead to enlightenment. To be united in this life as man and wife, parent and children, is the result of our past actions, of a shared karma. That is why we should at all costs avoid quarelling and live in harmony.

Great Compassion is the Source of Great Genuineness ~ Chögyam Trungpa
http://justdharma.com/s/2tbkm

Great compassion is the source of great genuineness in the practitioner. Usually we want to cheat, to deceive, and twist things for our own sake. We distrust something or other, and feel that the situation is not quite right, so we begin to cheat or become evasive. We are trying to avoid something. But in the case of great compassion, there is no attempt to avoid anything because everything is clear. Everything is completely seen through.
