Live Lightly

“We have to cultivate contentment with what we have.
We really don’t need much.
When you know this, the mind settles down.
Cultivate generosity.
Delight in giving.
Learn to live lightly.
In this way, we can begin to transform what is negative
into what is positive.
This is how we start to grow up.”

— Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo

No Excuses

“Again and again some people in the crowd wake up,
They have no ground in the crowd,
And they emerge according to much broader laws.
They carry strange customs with them
And demand room for bold gestures.
The future speak ruthlessly through them.”

— Rainer Maria Rilke
