I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives. I’m not talking about the short-term gratification of pleasures like sex, drugs or gambling (though I’m not knocking them), but something that will bring true and lasting happiness. The kind that sticks.

Life isn’t as serious as the mind makes it out to be.

The Eightfold Path

The mystics ask you to take nothing on mere belief. Rather, they give you a set of experiments to test in your own awareness and experience. The laboratory is your own mind, the experiment is meditation.

Ken Wilber (via metaconscious)

No Other Shore


'You only arrive at the other shore when you finally realize that there is no other shore. In other words, we make a journey to the “promised land,” the other shore, and we have arrived when we realize that we were there all along. Its very paradoxical.'

- Chogyam Trungpa, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism.

When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways—either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength.

Cliffs of Moher - Ireland (von El-Moe)

The problem is that ego can convert anything to its own use, even spirituality.

Chogyam Trungpa (via thecalminside)

A person who is beginning to sense the suffering of life is, at the same time, beginning to awaken to deeper realities, truer realities. For suffering smashes to pieces the complacency of our normal ­fictions about reality, and forces us to come alive in a special sense—to see carefully, to feel deeply, to touch ourselves and our worlds in ways we have heretofore avoided.

Ken Wilber, quoted in “The Thorn and the Rose,” compiled and edited by Anthony Williams. From ARCS in our new Spring Issue: “Suffering.” (via parabola-magazine)
