Mind-made

Hi.

One evening by the fire Monkey spoke to the animals:

“Funny thing this label that says “Made in china”, “Made in india” or “made in Japan” because when you get down to it, everything is Made in Mind or Mind-made.”

Live here

Hi.

One evening by the fire Monkey spoke to the animals:
”There is an old story about a man who ran from his shadow and finally fell down exhausted. The same goes with life. 
No matter how hard you pursue pleasure and success there are time when you will fail. 
No matter how fast you run, Sometimes you will stumble.
It is much better to appreciate and value what you have here, now, and build around that than always live on the run.”

No mud, no lotus

Hi.


One evening by the fire Monkey spoke to the animals:
”It is true that without mud you have no lotus.
The difficulty is to see that for what it really is and appreciate them both equally.”

Why are they smiling?

Hi.


Why are they smiling?

A visitor came to the clearing and after a while took Monkey aside and asked:
"I thought that Buddhism was a pessimistic religion all about suffering, death asf. So why are they smiling and what are everybody so happy about?"

Monkey just looked at him and smiled even wider.

What to do about worry

Hi.

One evening at the fire Monkey spoke to the animals:

"If you are worried about something, sit down, grasp the worry and hold it really, really tight.
Now watch what happens.
The harder you try to stay worried, the more difficult it becomes and eventually the worry dissipates."

A house of bricks

Hi.

One evening at the fire Monkey spoke to the animals:

"Our practice is like building a house of bricks.
You put down brick by brick until you have a finished house. 
Yet, at the same time as you put down your first brick your house is built."
