A sage does not speak in terms of being equal, lower or higher. Calmed and without selfishness he neither grasps nor rejects.

WEEKLY WISDOM 20/02/2012

Phenomena are preceded by the heart
ruled by the heart,
made of the heart.
If you speak or act
with a calm, bright heart,
then happiness follows you,
like a shadow
that never leaves.
– Dhammapada [1]

WEEKLY WISDOM 13/02/2012

Hard to hold down, nimble,
alighting wherever it likes: the mind.
Its taming is good.
The mind well-tamed
brings ease.

– Dhammapada [3]

WEEKLY WISDOM 06/02/2012

The source of all good, evil, weal and harm lies with actions, speech and thoughts. Did you bring your actions, speech and thoughts with you today? Or have you left them at home? This is where you must look, right here. You don’t have to look very far away. Look at your actions, speech and thoughts.

– Ajahn Chah, “Living Dharma”
