    Reminds this quiet guy of one of my favorite quotes from Blaise Pascal:
    β€œAll of man’s misfortune comes from one thing, which is not knowing how to sit quietly in a room”
    Everyone is prey to distractedness, to seeing solace in activity as an escape from experiencing ourselves. In fact this is one of the major obstacles to a meaningful life. Bodhipaksa argues, however, that the force underlying our distractedness is a creative one, and that properly channeled it can take us all the way to enlightenment.

  2. Reminds me of – the more I practice the luckier I get

    I’ve lived in France for 33 years and I’ve never met anyone who eats frogs, so I’m still wondering: WHY the Brits call the French “froggies”?! πŸ™‚ Well, we call them “rosbifs”=roast beef, but they eat more lamb & mutton… πŸ™‚ urban legends and clichΓ©s… πŸ™‚

      • Here is one of my favourites…

        β€œJust go into the room, and put one chair in the center. Take the one seat in the center of the room, open the doors and windows, and see who comes to visit. You will witness all kinds of scenes and actors, all kinds of temptations and stories, everything imaginable. Your only job is to stay in your seat. You will see it all arise and pass, and out of this, wisdom and understanding will come.” ~ Ajahn Chah
