Buddha Dream

There was once a poor man who made tea everyday on a fire. He didn’t realize that his hearthstones were made of gold. So everyday, he lived in poverty with unknown riches at his fingertips. We are like that. We have a limitless mind, yet we choose to not be okay. One of the most beneficial first steps we can take is to stop hating suffering…to actually be okay with it. Over time we work with our mind and exercise our “being okay” muscle. The essential point is that our mind is very flexible and its capacity is limitless. Therefore, how we relate to whatever is appearing, is a choice. Mind and that it is limitless, is our hearthstone of gold, our treasure. We should know this. – Khentrul Rinpoche
