“The more you attempt to reject external phenomena, the more they will spring back to you. Hence, therefore, the importance of recognizing the empty nature of your thoughts and simply allowing them to dissolve.
The tree that grants all wishes takes root in a mind that turns away from samsara and aspires only to liberation. Faith and compassion form its trunk. Abandoning harm and the practice of virtue are its branches, while all the virtues are its leaves. Its flowers are the realisation of the qualities essential to meditation. From these arise its fruit, the perfect state of buddhahood. -- Kalu Rinpoche
