When …

When we are unable to find tranquillity within ourselves,

it is useless to seek it elsewhere.

François de la Rochefoucauld

Cuando no podemos encontrar tranquilidad en nosotros mismos,

no tiene sentido buscarla en otro lado.

When you are…

When you are practising zazen, do not try to stop your thinking.

Let it stop by itself. If something comes into your mind, let it come in, and let it go out.

It will not stay long.

When you try to stop your thinking, it means you are bothered by it.

Do not be bothered by it.

Do not be bothered by anything.

If you are not bothered by the waves, gradually they will become calmer and calmer.

Shunryu Suzuki

Cuando estés practicando zazen, no intentes detener tu pensamiento.

Deja que se detenga solo.

Si algo viene a tu mente, deja que entre, y deja que se vaya.

No permanecerá por mucho tiempo.

Cuando intentas detener tu pensamiento, significa que te está molestando.

Que nada te moleste.

Si las olas no te molestan, gradualmente estas se volverán mas y mas calmas.

Shunryu Suzuki

Peace is something…

Peace is something you will never experience if you keep letting things you cannot control, control you.

Let it go.

Trent Shelton

Paz es algo que no podrás sentir nunca si sigues intentando controlar cosas que no puedes controlar, y estas te controlan a ti.

Dejalas ir.
