Practice recognition of complete emptiness of all things at all times, under every condition, everywhere, and you will learn by yourself what Buddha preached.
Free from Desire: What I really only want, what Ma’s given me, is freedom to do nothing.—- … So I wont re-attach myself to brunettes, French movies and banana splits—-
Happiness won’t come from coddling the senses but from cultivating the mind.
Society is a system of lures, I’M THROUGH WITH IT.
Learn to be bored and unhigh and unexcited or leave this world—What’s fame and fortune but a big nervous binge? What have you got to do with what any of your friends think, Paisan?
What is my book but just making history among the fools—the sooner I give up literary attainment the sooner Enlightenment will come to me—If on my deathbed day I’m still involved in literary matters I’ll deserve the most painful of rebirths—-Milarepa, save me!
“Worldly acquisitions of wealth and the need of clinging to them, as well as the pursuit of the Eight Worldly Aims, I regard with as much loathing and disgust as man who is suffering from biliousness regardeth the sight of rich food. Nay, I regard them as if they were murderers of my father; therefore it is that I am assuming this beggarly and penurious mode of life.” —Milarepa
Practice wishing happiness to all your friends, acquaintances, & enemies…
