Chinese Wisdom



If you let cloudy water settle, it will become clear. If you let your upset mind settle, your course will also become clear. Let your mind become clear like a still forest pool.
If you take care of each moment, you will take care of all time.Victory creates hatred, defeat creates suffering. Those who are wise strive for neither victory or defeat.
Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.
Weigh the true advantages of forgiveness and resentment to the heart. Then choose.
In the beginner’s mind, there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few.
Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others.
Spiritual life should include a great measure of common sense.
We can be spacious, yet full of loving kindness; full of compassion, yet serene. Live like the strings of a fine instrument — not too taut and not too loose.
If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.
Good-humoured patience is necessary with mischievious children and your own mind.
Life is so hard, how can we be anything but kind?
Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.
Everything in moderation, including moderation.
There is only one time when it is essential to awaken. That time is now.
Through our senses the world appears. Through our reactions we create delusions. Without reactions the world becomes clear.
It is not our preferences that cause problems but our attachment to them.
The trouble is that you think you have time.
Some days we feel like strangers. When our heart opens, we will realize that we belongs just here. Those who are awake live in a state of constant amazement.
