“If with a pure mind a person speaks
Happiness follows them
a never-departing shadow.”
“There are two kinds of suffering:
the kind that leads to more suffering
the kind that brings an end to suffering.”
“Just as a snake sheds its skin,
we must shed our past over and over again.”
We are shaped by our thoughts;
we become what we think.
When the mind is pure,
joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
“There is nothing so disobedient as an undisciplined mind,
there is nothing so obedient as a disciplined mind.”
“The Way is not in the sky; the Way is in the heart.”
“When you dig a well, there’s no sign of water until you reach it,
only rocks and dirt to move out of the way.
You have removed enough; soon the pure water will flow,
” said Buddha.”
