Life is not a problem

Life is not a problem.

It can be lived, but it cannot be solved.

When there is much confusion,

it is not a good time to push through to decision.

When the winds are blowing in all directions,

with dust and debris swirling all around,

how can you see your way?

Let the winds die down; let the confusion pass.

The most violent storm exhausts itself.

Let it be for now; watch the powerful winds.

Admire their strength. Do not try to control them.

After the storm, comes the calm.

Only in peace can you walk your way.

An agitated mind cannot settle, even on the obvious.

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
