This weeks offering from Lama Suryas Das reminds us that we already have all we need to achieve perfection.
The Buddha said that all sentient beings possess Buddha Nature. Because of that we have this natural purity, peacefulness and power. We can rest the mind naturally because we are already in possession of these qualities. If one can rest the mind naturally, that’s the best meditation. Non-meditation is the supreme meditation.
~ Mingyur Rinpoche
What I like best about this thought is that it empowers us to strive to improve ourselves. If we already have all we need to become great, why wait to try it out? We don’t need to look for outside conditions or forces to manifest. We can change ourselves now, thereby changing our world and the worlds of those around us. As Mahatma Ghandi said: Be the change you want to see in the world.
