When you run….

When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick; every time a stick is thrown, you run after it.

But if, instead, you look at where your thoughts are coming from, you will see that each thought arises and dissolves within the space of that awareness, without engendering other thoughts.

Be like a lion, who rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower.

One only throws a stick to a lion once.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Cuando corres detrás de tus pensamientos, es como un perro que persigue un palo. Cada vez que se arroja un palo, tu sales corriendo tras el.

Pero, si miras de donde vienen tus pensamientos, verás que cada uno de ellos nace y se disipa en ese momento conciente, sin provocar otros pensamientos.

Sé como un león, quien en vez de perseguir un palo, mira a la cara a quien lo arroja.

Uno solamente le arroja un palo al león una sola vez.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Meditation could be…

Meditation could be said to be the Art of simplicity:

simply sitting,

simply breathing

and

simply being.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Puede decirse que la meditación es el arte de lo simple:

simplemente sentarse,

simplemente respirar,

y

simplemente ser.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche R

So what is time?

So, what is time?

I no one asks me, I know:

If I want to explain it to a person who asks, I do not know anymore and yet, I affirm with certainty that,

had nothing passed, there would be no past time – had nothing happened there would not be future time,

had nothing existed, there would be no present time.

St. Augustine

Entonces, qué es el tiempo?

Si nadie me pregunta, yo lo sé:

Si lo quiero explicar a la persona que pregunta, no lo sé y aún así afirmo con certeza que,

si nada hubiera sucedido, no habría tiempo pasado – si nada pasara no habría futuro,

si nada existiera, no habría presente.

St. Augustine

Don’t bend…

Don’t bend;

Don’t water it down;

Don’t try to make it logical;

Don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion.

Rather,

follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.

Anne Rice

No te doblegues;

No te moderes;

No intentes buscarle la lógica;

No edites tu propia alma de acuerdo a las modas.

Mas bien , sigue tus obsesiones mas intensas de forma impía.

Anne Rice
