Inspiration Friday: me, myself and I

rinpoche

To work on the mind is a very vast subject; in fact it is the subject of the entire Buddha Dharma. In essence the main reason the mind generates it’s confusing passions and intense emotions is the strong clinging to I, me, and mine. Because of that clinging, we suffer when do not obtain all that the I wants, and we suffer by experiencing with the I does not want.

It is through meditating over and again on the illusory and insubstantial nature of mind, ego, of self, that we slowly can dissolve ego clinging. Among all the methods to achieve this result, the deepest one is the meditation on bodhichitta – unselfish love and compassion. To be full of love for all sentient beings, and to consider others more important than ourselves is the very root of Dharma, combining wisdom and compassion.
