Developing Resilience ~ finding our inner strength
with Gen Kelsang Lhachog
In the New Eight Steps to Happiness, it says:“A person with no patience has no stability of mind,and is upset by the slightest obstacle or criticism.In contrast, when we develop real patienceour mind will be as stable as a mountainand as calm as the depths of an ocean.“
Through training in meditation we can develop an inner strength that enables us to quickly deal with difficulties from the clear and calm space of patient acceptance. In this way our ability to solve our daily problems will increase and we will be able to choose to meet the challenges in our life without the pain and suffering of an uncontrolled mind.
