The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

All Comes By Itself

but is here, nearby, in your relaxing and surrendering.

Don’t worry, there is nothing to be done.

Everything that comes up to your mind

has no importance because it has no reality.

Don’t conceive any attachment for it.

Don’t judge yourself.

Let it be.

Let it come up and down, without changing a thing.

It all vanishes and begins again, endlessly.

Nothing but the quest for happiness

prevents us from seeing it.

It is like a rainbow that one is always chasing

without ever reaching it.

It is because it has no existence.

It has always been here and goes with you all the time.

Don’t believe in the reality of experiences, good or bad.

They are like rainbows.

Because we want to grasp what is not to be grasped,

We exhaust our strength in vain.

As soon as we relinquish our hold,

space is here, open, welcoming and comfortable.

So, do enjoy it.

Everything is yours already.

Stop searching.

Don’t go into the jungle to look for the elephant

that is quietly waiting for you at home.

There is nothing to do.

There is nothing to force.

There is nothing to desire.

And all comes by itself.

—Lama Gendun Rinpoche
