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
