"A flower is always happy because it is beautiful.
Bees sing their song of loneliness and weep.
A waterfall is busy hurrying to the ocean.
A poet is blown by the wind.
A friend without inside or outside
And a rock that is not happy or sad
Are watching the winter crescent moon
Suffering from the bitter wind."
Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche from the book "Timely Rain: Selected Poetry of Chogyam Trungpa"

Nothing wrong with having pleasures ~ Lama Yeshe
http://justdharma.com/s/ad624

Contrary to what some people might believe, there is nothing wrong with having pleasures and enjoyments. What is wrong is the confused way we grasp onto these pleasures, turning them from a source of happiness into a source of pain and dissatisfaction.

Praia do Carvalho - Lagoa, Algarve (Portugal).

O recorte da costa configura como que um “V” apertado, acomodando no seu interior um pequeno e acolhedor areal ladeado por paredes rochosas ocres e muito trabalhadas pela erosão. Um cénico e enorme leixão marca a linha central da praia, cortando o horizonte. A linha de arriba mantém-se altaneira em toda a extensão da praia: o acesso ao areal é feito através dum túnel escavado à mão na parede rochosa, onde se observam inúmeros fósseis marinhos embutidos. E alguém escavou com gosto e paciência, não só o túnel, mas inúmeros nichos, pórticos e até um cómodo espaço para um bar, em plena face da arriba. O barranco que antecede a praia é muito verdejante e alberga densos matos litorais onde dominam o zimbro, a aroeira e a palmeira-anã, a única palmeira nativa da Europa. Um emaranhado de lianas cresce profusamente sobre os arbustos, que se fazem colorir por líquenes na época húmida. Na rocha calcária já exposta à salsugem, crescem plantas típicas das arribas como o limónio ou o vistoso pampilho-marítimo.

Become the panic ~ Chögyam Trungpa
http://justdharma.com/s/ilerh

Usually when panic arises, we try to brush it off and occupy ourselves with something else. There is somebody very reasonable in us, who says, "This is your imagination. Everything is going to be okay. Don’t worry. Take a rest. Have a glass of milk." But if instead you go along with the panic and become the panic, there is a lot of room in the panic, because the panic is full of air bubbles, so to speak. It is very spacious. You probably find yourself suspended in the midst of panic, which is suspended in space.

You are Buddha in the making ~ Tai Situ Rinpoche
http://justdharma.com/s/i5sk4

I remind you that each one of you, all sentient beings, ultimately, right now, are in essence perfect, they are Buddha. The only thing is that they don’t realize this. They are not pretending to not realize, they sincerely and truly do not realize this, including me.... This way I thought to remind you about the same thing that helps me very much, by reminding myself. And I remind myself all the time, "You are not just Tai Situ, you are Buddha in the making. You are an unenlightened Buddha, a primordial Buddha. You are not as bad as you might think, but also you are not as good as you should be, very far from being as good as you should be." So this helps me very much. This does not give me much chance to have any so-called depression, so-called stress, so-called pride or, so-called disappointment. When somebody does something terrible, I don’t like it, but then deep inside I think, why not? Because the person does not know he or she is a Buddha, then why not? When somebody does something wonderful I’m very happy. I’m very delighted. But deep inside I think, why not? He is a Buddha, she is a Buddha, so why not? This way it really benefits me personally, tremendously, and all the credit goes to my great masters because everything is because of them. So I am very happy to share this with you.

Taking to heart the key instructions ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
http://justdharma.com/s/cy5l7

Understand this: it is more important to take to heart the key instructions than to receive a great many teachings.
