Astrology for 9/1/2015

9/1/2015 Tuesday by Norma

A forward push both succeeds and fails, depending on your perspective. Ceremonies, events and everything to do with fun- these go well. Attempts to decipher and unblock obstacles may or may not succeed. Sammy Farha said, “Just play every hand- you can’t miss them all.” This is a great day to […]

The Silent Chant

The Silent Chant

An excerpt from a teaching by Jetsunma Ahkon Norbu Lhamo on October 18, 1995

We are talking about the Lama as being our own precious nature. Someday when we die and all the elements fall away, what will arise naturally is the natural state, free of contrivance. And they say for the practitioner there […]

Outside the Reaction

mara

Remember, when you are angry at your teacher, which really is useless to be, when you are resentful, when you are anxious, when you are going through all the gamut of human experience, which you do, when you do everything from wanting to belt your teacher right in the snoot to falling desperately in love with your teacher… When any of those things happen, remember that this is a reflection of your mind. This is your nature. This is your habitual tendency rather; and as you go deeper into your practice with your teacher, you will eventually also see your nature. In the way that you saw your habitual tendency, you will also see your nature.

Stand outside of that reaction. It is only that. It has no real importance. It’s not a big deal. Don’t make a big deal out of it. Don’t blame yourself; don’t make yourself right. It’s neither one. It’s just a reaction. They come and they go. No big deal. Just walk through the door of liberation. That is all your teacher wishes you to do. That is all the guru really wishes you to do, just walk. That’s all. Just move forward.
