Sleeping Buddha

Trying to Awaken

12 notes

Buddhism explains that our normal state of mind is such that our thoughts and emotions are wild and unruly, and since we lack the mental discipline needed to tame them, we are powerless to control them. As a result, they control us. And thoughts and emotions, in their turn, tend to be controlled by our negative impulses rather than our positive ones. We need to reverse this cycle.
from “The Dalai Lama’s Little Book of Wisdom” by The Dalai Lama
