The great treasure

The root of all happiness is the mind; the root of all suffering is the mind. The root of all afflictions and the root of all faith, devotion, love and compassion come down to the mind. If we know the nature of our mind, we can make use of the great treasure and eventually gain perfect happiness and the ultimate result of liberation and omniscience.

– Thrangu Rinpoche

“The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it. Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”

The sweet joy of living in the way

“There is no fire like greed, no crime like hatred, no sorrow like separation, no sickness like hunger of the heart, and no joy like the joy of freedom. Health, contentment and trust are your greatest possessions, and freedom your greatest joy.

Look within, be still. Free from fear and attachment, know the sweet joy of living in the way.”

~The Buddha

Freedom is the only condition for happiness

 “At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it. Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.”

~Thich Nhat Hanh~
