Thank you Karl over at Mindful Balance for today’s inspiration.
I will be like a lion today… You?
When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick:
every time a stick is thrown, you run after it.
Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower.
One only throws a stick at a lion once
Milarepa, Tibetan Buddhism, 1052 – 1135
