Useless

images (1)The mind is spinning around

about carrying out a lot of useless projects.

It’s a waste. Give it up!

Thinking about the hundred plans you want to accomplish,

with never enough time to finish them,

just weighs down your mind.

You’re completely distracted

by all these projects, which never come to an end,

but keep spreading out more, like ripples in water.

Don’t be a fool. For once, just sit tight.

―Patrul Rinpoche

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.

    I have been wanting to let go of activities which I see as helpful, but which tire me out. This advice from Patrul Rinpoche lets me see I do not need to continue on, but that “sitting tight” can be helpful too. cc
