So many of us now have the sensation of standing about two inches away from this very crowded, noisy, constantly shifting big screen, and that screen is our lives. It’s only by stepping back that we can see what the screen is communicating.

~ Pico Iyer


There is often this feeling that we put all our hopes and fears outside ourselves. “If I have this or that then everything will be fine. If I don’t have it, I cannot really be happy.”

… In the end, we deal with our mind from morning till evening, and it can be our best friend or our worst enemy.  If we don’t deal with the inner condition for well-being, then we are really in trouble.

~ Matthieu Ricard
