””“”With a determination to accomplish The highest welfare for all sentient beings Who surpass even a wish-granting jewel I will learn to hold them supremely dear.
Whenever I associate with others I will learn To think of myself as the lowest among all And respectfully hold others to be supreme From the very depths of my heart.
In all actions I will learn to search into my mind And as soon as a delusion arises Endangering myself and others I will bravely face and avert it.
I will learn to cherish beings of bad nature And those oppressed by strong evil and suffering As if I had found a precious Treasure that is very difficult to find.
When others out of jealousy and anger treat me badly With abuse, slander, and so on, I will learn accept all loss and defeat, And offer victory to them.
When one whom I have benefited with great hope Unreasonably hurts me very badly, I will learn to view that person As my holy spiritual friend.
In short, I will learn to offer to everyone without exception All help and happiness directly and indirectly And secretly take upon myself All harm and suffering of all sentient beings, my mothers.
I will learn to keep all these practices Undefiled despite the power of the eight worldly conceptions And by understanding all phenomena as illusory Find release without grasping from the bondage of attachment.””“”
#6 is the one I try to practice when travelling on major highways between 5 and 7pm and I allow someone to cut in and then they drive 20 mph slower than everyone else. Driving contains a lot of wisdom, sometimes. Yes, Dad, I’m talking to you haha
"Push on the gas - the car go zoom, zoom"
"You can go on green in this state"
"Oh great, what a nin-com-poop"
"What did other drivers do before I started telling them what to do?"
"Next time buy a car that you know how to drive"
haha a tell-tale sign a post has gone too far is when it becomes a mash-up of shit my dad says and tibetan buddhism
That new starbucks cup size can hold an entire bottle of wine. Really.
"Even if a hundred-ton boulder should fall, I would be safe! No need to try to stop it, just move out of the way. You do not have a problem if you do not try to take it on yourself. Most people suffer because they try to take upon themselves things which they do not need to."
12:05 p.m. As of right now, we do not have any type of events with any type of outages. We are still asking people to conserve energy. Police continue to turn off any unnecessary lights or appliances and hopefully we can stop them from happening. We’re still on the lookout for any problems tomorrow with more bad weather coming. So, please be mindful that it could happen then. - Jeamy Molina, Oncor
"any type of events with any type of outages" crystal clear.
"we are still asking people to conserve energy" of course! it results in longer life.
”Police continue to turn off any unnecessary lights…” wait. What?
"…hopefully we can stop them happening." Stop the police from happening?
I assume they meant “please” instead of “police”, but if you’re dictating this to someone in a hurry, it can sound the same i’m sure.
