According to Buddha

To meet someone who really hurts you is to meet a rare and precious treasure. Hold that person in high esteem, and make full use of the opportunity to eradicate your defects and make progress on the path. If you cannot yet feel love and compassion for those who treat you badly, it is a sign that your mind has not been fully transformed and that you need to keep working on it with increased application

*(simile) To sting severely, to cause a sensation of stinging, especially said of cold weather. To my small hands, the bitter wind cuts like a knife, freezing my fingers and numbing my circulation.

According to Buddha

As human beings, we are all the same. So there is no need to build some kind of artificial barrier between us. At least my own experience is that if you have this kind of attitude, there is no barrier. 

it ain’t no joke, i’d like to buy the world a toke
and teach the world to sing in perfect harmony
and teach the world to snuff the fires and the liars
hey, i know it’s just a song but it’s spice for the recipe

According to Buddha

Just hearing about patience does not mean you are experiencing it now or will easily develop it. To lay the ground for training the mind, you must first tame the mind. To tame the mind, it is extremely important to do the basic shamata [tranquility meditation, calm abiding] practice, which develops calmness and tranquility. Then you can add the practice of patience, understanding the benefits of patience and reminding yourself to take advantage of the available antidotes.

this is the purpose of changing

and they are necessary here

If you want to understand suffering you must look into the situation at hand. The teachings say that wherever a problem arises it must be settled right there.

We don’t meditate to see heaven, but to end suffering.

According to Buddha

I am not, I will not be. 
I have not, I will not have,
That frightens all the childish 
And extinguishes fear in the wise.
since you went away the days grow long
and soon i’ll hear old winter’s song
but i miss you most of all my darling
when autumn leaves start to fall

According to Buddha

Do everything with a mind that lets go. Do not expect any praise or reward. If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace. If you let go completely, you will know complete peace and freedom. Your struggles with the world will have come to an end.

look
if you had
one shot
or one opportunity
to seize everything, you ever wanted
in one moment
would you capture it
or just let it slip?

There is such a thing
