I came across this article today... six slogans each embodying a Buddhist lesson about how to deal with the world when things become difficult. I thought it was a good article, about Buddhism and how to use it when the rubber hits the road. Practical teachings which you can take with you in meditation, and which will help you in the real world once the mind is trained.
Transforming bad circumstances into the path is associated with the practice of patience. There are six mind-training (lojong) slogans connected with this:
Turn all mishaps into the path.
Drive all blames into one.
Be grateful to everyone.
See confusion as buddha and practice emptiness.
Do good, avoid evil, appreciate your lunacy, pray for help.
Whatever you meet is the path.
These are the six slogans, perhaps you will recognise some. The article gives a detailed explanation of each one.
Which strikes you as being the most useful? Which do you connect with?
