Dharma Message August 2018

"Thoughts are the play of pure awareness. They arise within it and dissolve back into it. To recognize pure awareness as where your thoughts come from is to recognize that your thoughts have never come into existence, remained or ceased. At that point, thoughts can no longer trouble your mind. When you run after your thoughts you are like a dog chasing a stick, every time the stick is thrown you 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 at a lion once." -- Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Excerpted from His Commentary on Padampa Sangye's Hundred Verses of Advice included in Collected Works of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Vol. II (2010). San Francisco Theosophical Society Lodge, August 2018.
