I think over again my small adventures, my fears, those small ones that seemed so big, for all those vital things I had to get and to reach, and yet there is only one great thing: to live and see the great day that dawns, and the light that fills the world.
– Old Innuit Song
Be willing to be uncomfortable. Be comfortable being uncomfortable. It may get tough, but it’s a small price to pay for living a dream.
– Peter Mc Williams
Even if you have a lot of work to do, if you think of it as wonderful, and if you feel it as wonderful, it will transform into the energy of joy and fire, instead of becoming a burden.
– Tulku Thondup Rinpoche
“The Practice of Dzogchen”
How can you expect anything in the world to make you happy if in your inner world you are unhappy?
If you find yourself constantly saying, that in order to be happy, you must have this thing or you must have that thing, then make no mistake, you will be unhappy shortly after you get it. Your aching will reappear.
Outer happiness starts from the inside. You will find that whatever you have, be it ever so little, you will be completely content.
