From "Training this mind" by Ajahn Chah:
"Training this mind... actually there's nothing much to this mind. It's simply radiant in and of itself. It's naturally peaceful. Why the mind doesn't feel peaceful right now is because it gets lost in its own moods. There's nothing to mind itself. It simply abides in its natural state, that's all. That sometimes the mind feels peaceful and other times not peaceful is because it has been tricked by these moods..."
"Things derive their being and nature by mutual dependence and are nothing in themselves." Nagarjuna
"Thoughts are like clouds. Even though the clouds sometimes seem to cover the entire sky, if you take a plane you can go beyond them into a vast space that is never even touched by the clouds. The clouds of our ordinary thoughts are just temporary and changing, whilst the deeper nature of our mind is unchanging, like the infinite space of the sky."
From "Breath by Breath" by Larry Rosenberg ( page 129 )
"Emptiness is the crown jewel of Buddhism. If everything is constantly changing, then nothing has a substantial core with any degree of endurance."
"Sabbe dhamma anatta" ( there is no self in the created or the uncreated )
