Asking “Who is the villain?” is the prologue to asking who should be punished.

But asking “What are the conditions that led to this?” leads us to consider how to change those conditions so that the situation is less likely to happen again.

Even though we cannot see clearly how it’s going to turn out, we are still called to let the future into our imagination.

We will never be able to build what we have not first cherished in our hearts.

Nothing is merely a means to an end, nothing is merely a step on the path to somewhere else. Every moment, everything, is absolutely foundational in its own right.

Anger is considered a poison when it’s self-motivated and self-centered.

But take that attachment to the self out of anger and the same emotion becomes the fierce energy of determination, which is a very positive force …

Drop the self-orientation from ignorance, and it becomes a state of unknowing that allows new things to rise.

Equanimity is said to be an anchor.

It protects you against the “worldly winds”—pleasure and pain, praise and blame, gain and loss, and fame and disrepute—by keeping you anchored so you’re not tossed about by those winds.

Without the feeling of separation from the rest of the world, we lose the need to strain and stress to be better, more clever, or more accomplished. We can start to just be. That’s all there is to it.

Don’t worry about the future; don’t worry about the past. Stay right here.

Ultimately you get so that you can’t say that you’re going forward, you can’t say that you’re going back, you can’t say that you’re staying in place.

There’s nothing to be attached to.

To truly connect with other human beings, we must dare to present ourselves in ways that depict the true variety and complexity of our human experience.

Without honesty there is no real bond between us, and without connection, nothing else really matters.
