We can’t change the past

Time is always moving on; nothing can stop it. We can’t change the past, but we can shape the future. The more compassionate you are, the more you will find inner peace. However, education systems today tend not to adequately enhance basic human nature. Nevertheless, since human beings have a natural ability to think things through, education is a key factor in creating a better future. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dali Lama

See it for what it is, pervasive suffering

Sometimes we are hot, sometimes not. Don’t worry. Welcome to the never fully satisfying samsara. Either too much, or too little, never just right, at least for very long. Rather than ignore and disbelieve this ingrown dissatisfaction, recognize it. See it for what it is, pervasive suffering. Pervasive suffering not only for you, but for everyone! On this basis, use this pervasive suffering as a catalyst to get rid of samsara. For yourself it is renunciation For all others, it is unconditional compassion. Seeing the elusive nature of pervasive suffering, is wisdom. Our self, others, and pervasive suffering itself, are all figments of our imagination. They appear independent of our mind, but on deeper inspection, do not exist as they appear. They are empty (absent) of independent existence on their own, from their own side. Yet they do exist, dependent on our minds. Chew on this for a while! Emaho! ~ Barry Kerzin
