What we call the ‘mind’ is a very curious phenomenon

Screen Shot 2013-05-18 at 5.17.13 PMWhat we call the ‘mind’ is a very curious phenomenon.

Sometimes it is rigid and resistant to any change.

It can also become very flexible as long as we make constant effort to transform it and convince ourselves, through reflection, that this change is not only possible but essential.

To do so, wishes and prayers are not enough. We need to use reason based on experience.

One should not expect this transformation to happen overnight, as our old habits will resist any rapid solution.

— HH the fourteenth Dalai Lama
