Dear friends,

I thought I give a short video talk on change and how to integrate dharma into our lives now and immediately. We like to make excuses and justifications of why we can’t… how about if we start to say we can and produce results…

Love and care,
Tsem Rinpoche

    The dharma teachings are holy and sacred but it cannot change our life become better overnight. We have to learn the dharma and applying it daily, we will have changes. Dharma can only be called dharma when we have transformation in the mind.

    Always challenge our mind, from negative thinking to positive thinking. When we train our mind to think positively, we may become calmer, happier, and able to accept more difficult situation for others with higher purposes. We have to understand that only we can change our thoughts. So start practicing dharma now diligently with consistency and there will be results.

    Change doesn’t come without effort. As Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche said in his commentary on Lama Tsongkhapa’s “The Three Principal Paths” (“The Three Principal Aspects of the Path”), “if you really put forth the effort, there’s no question that you can even become a Buddha”.

  3. Pastor Moh Mei on Jan 24, 2016 at 4:07 pm

    We expect dharma to be some profound wisdom that is the solution to all our problems. It is. But dharma is also logical, it’s not magical. You still need to learn how to drive that car, cook that dish – that’s the part we don’t want to hear. We want to take a pill and it’s instant enlightenment. That’s why many of us despite finding dharma, will still leave because we are still looking that pill.

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 3, 2015 at 4:48 am

    If we brought ourselves this this state due to habituations of 30 years plus, it may not be logical to think a solution can be found via dharma with a few weeks of going through the motions of practicing dharma. It is not impossible but highly improbable. Rinpoche tells us we can change, if we apply the dharma, and better to start now to effect that change in us.

  5. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Jun 23, 2015 at 11:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us a short yet powerful video teaching of changing ourselves with positive results by applying the Dharma practice after we have listened and learnt the Dharma. There is no immediate or quick fix when we enter into a Dharma class but gradually applying the Dharma into ourselves with mind transformation day by day before we can completely get rid of our long habituated negativity such as selfish mind, egoism, self-grasping, hatred, jealousy and ignorance. Challenging our mind to endure the difficult situation by consistently staying on the pure Dharma practice can make us feel uneasy and unhappy in the short term, but self liberation from samsara with ultimate happiness is awaiting us ahead in the long term through the Dharma practice.

  6. Pastor Han Nee on May 29, 2015 at 9:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. Yes, I am responsible for the way I apply the dharma to transform my mind to be more positive and less egotistical.No one can do it for me. At the same time I must be patient and persevering, as my mind will not effect changes overnight. I have had many years of negative habituation. How can I expect a change to take place instantly. I must let go of the past and also always think of how I hurt others when I continue to cling to my negative habituations.

    I must not think I can’t do it. I CAN, I MUST, I WILL.If I don’t persevere and just give up, it will be a great waste. I have met all the opportune conditions; and, most rare and precious of all, I have met my Spiritual Guide.If I give up, I will continue to circle samsara and continue to suffer lifetime after lifetime, as I have done for lifetimes before this.

  7. Li Kheng on May 28, 2015 at 6:21 pm

    In my first audience with Rinpoche, Rinpoche advised that for change and transformation to be sustainable, we must implement change with wisdom and compassion, i.e taking it one step at a time. Moderate implementation makes a goal more attainable albeit challenging.

    Being an extreme person, I thank Rinpoche for this advise that is both very kind and wise.

    I hope for everyone who wishes to apply change in their lives to benefit from this short and precise teaching.

  8. Datuk May on May 21, 2015 at 3:00 pm

    So true, Rinpoche, holding onto past experience, except with skills of operation, does not help with Dharma practice.

    Even past experience and skills may not be useful as the world’s technology and things progress and upgrade.

    Holding on to our past is the highest form of self indulgence and the obstacle for inability to change. Perfect illustration of the egotistical mind.

    Thank you, Rinpoche.

  9. Leonard Ooi(Penang) on May 19, 2015 at 11:47 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Change is difficult especially when a person starts learning dharma and applying it. Everyone including me want quick fix for whatever problems we face and we expect quick results but as Rinpoche says – it will take time. We know it will take time for us to see the results but we’re just too impatient , thus we’ll just give up too easily. As for myself, I know it’s a long road for me but I will not give up in my spiritual path. As what Rinpoche said it take years in our habituation , thus it will take years too for us to see positive change in us. What I can say is that the biggest obstacle is in our mind – once our mind is transformed , we will be able to break through the barriers. The change we need has to come from within. People don’t and won’t change for us; thus we got to change from within ourselves. It is true to the fact that we have a egoistical mind that hinders us from applying the dharma that we have learnt.
    Thank you Rinpoche for reminding us about the need to learn dharma and applying it in our daily lives.

    “Only I can change myself and no one can do it for me. If I resolved to change, it is where the real transformation begin.” When the change comes from within, we will not be dissapointed by others. It is expectation that gives rise to all headaches. Expect less and change for the better. I might fear the unknown ( and still) but it is far more challenging than time wasted and having regrets. For better or worse, we are constantly changing and we just have to shape and mould it from time to time.

    Time waits for no man! I truly agree that if we want to see results, we have to start applying Dharma in our lives now. It’s not only about listening and understanding Dharma, key word here is to apply Dharma in our lives under all circumstances. We may not see results overnight due to number of years of habituation, but definitely will see results if we are consistent in our Dharma actions. Applying Dharma will only lead to positive changes. I will remember this teaching by heart. Thanks Rinpoche for such a profound teaching on change.

  12. nicholas on May 18, 2015 at 10:19 pm

    When we learn the drama, apply them in our daily action and when we see the results in our life there is where we see the satisfaction and from there we are convince that the dharma is right, truth and remedy for our problem and solution for our happiness. I agree that we need to take time to change but not to wait for change but to work for the change. I understand what Rinpoche is telling us here is to apply one day at a time, one month at a time… we need to apply but in a progressive pace as due to our habituation it take time to curb and apply the new method to counter negative habituation but we have to apply no matter ow hard it is.

    I like this “ Dharma is not just to learning, listening and understanding, Dharma is when you get results”.

  13. Michael C. on May 5, 2014 at 4:29 am

    lol! i Love this video. when You say “change” then You switch from right side of Your face showing to right side of Your face showing. lol. And the background – makes me want to go out and buy a lava lamp. And the Dharma flowing from your mouth is profound! This song keeps playing in my head, my brain synapses have made a connection between the two ( http://youtu.be/1lyu1KKwC74 )

  14. Jim Yeh on Sep 25, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Love the background!

    Thank you for sharing this with us Rinpoche. Some of us have embraced the dharma recently and we go through many new emotions, sometimes we think “oh, all my actions from now on will be pure” but then we slip up and feel guilty and confused about it. Or when conditions around us do not turn favourable immediately.

    This teaching explained that change do not happen overnight and it’s because of our years of habituation, our minds are so used to processing information in a certain way, that we can’t re-write that whole process in a mere few days. Similarly, if we spend years getting ourselves in a mess, we cannot untangle ourselves from it within 1 day.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for giving us the “secret” formula.

  15. Martin on Feb 23, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    This post was originally put up about one year ago and it is a good exercise now to reflect on whether we have indeed made progress in our Dharma practice by looking at our changes over the last year. Clearly in order to do that, we must firstly be mindful of what we need to change and then apply what we have learned from the Dharma and then test the changes under difficult circumstances. Positive change begets even more positive improvements because when there is a real change in us, we can taste it. It is a freedom from whatever afflictions used to have such a hold on us such as anger and depression and if we are practicing Dharma correctly, it is safe to say that we begin to crave for change. Over time difficult circumstances begin to present themselves as opportunities to measure ourselves rather than registering as problems.

    I thoroughly love this short teachings that we can out into effect immediately.

  16. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 19, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    Very powerful on how we can be a better person. If we have spent ten years habituating, it will take almost that amount of time to reverse the effect of our negative habituation.
    Unless somehow we have this major paradigm SHIFT. Ans sometimes the Lama makes that magic happen in the SHIFT.

  17. uncle eddie on Feb 14, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, for your interesting video talk on how to integrate Dharma into our lives and pschedically change ourselves. Yes, when we have experienced some sort of compassion, care and concern for others from our practice,we certainly feel happy and joyful and have no hesitancy to helping others. As a start, in bringing happiness to other people’s lives, our goals, ideas, aspirations and endeavours will grow, and as such, we are able to cultivate positive energies which at times of our practice of Dharma should be important! May we be able to have this as a total positive change, and bring that to others too! OM MANI PADME HUM.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this profound teachings. Transformation takes time, it doesn’t happen overnight. How much we want to change is dependent on how much effort we put in. Real dharma is when we transformed and get the results.

  20. David Lai on Feb 6, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    What a powerful teaching and reminder of how much we need to change all the time for the better. I am pretty much a creature of comfort and habit. I think that change is inevitable and how well we cope with change meaning to continually apply the Dharma with humility, perseverance and willingness to self-examine and follow through what is needed. I think one of the quotes Rinpoche posted before really reflects this spirit of transformation and change :-

    “The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”

  21. jennifer on Feb 6, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche on the short but very wise and profound teaching.

    It is so true that everyone wants the quick and easy way to Enlightenment -“quick fix, instant results”.
    We need to do the inner work ourselves, no matter how difficult and challenging it will be.
    As there is no one who can wave a magic wand or give us a magic pill and we instantly become Enlightened !!!

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us how to do it and thank you for explaining to us how wonderful transformation of the mind can be.

    Thank you for the short but meaningful video, Rinpoche. I learnt that change can sometimes take longer than what is expected and being compassion to oneself can help. In the our focus to be compassionate to others, it is easy to forget to be compassionate to oneself. With folded hands.

  26. Chenma on Feb 6, 2013 at 1:08 am

    beautiful teaching!

  27. mima on Apr 26, 2012 at 2:07 am

    “You can tolerate more difficult situation, you can accept more difficult situation and you can accept it for others for a higher purpose that is the Dharma”

    SO IMPORTANT POINT SO IMPORTANT ~~For others…..For others…..I wish to remember this every moment of my life. Thank you Rinpoche deeply with intent I wish for this sincerely..to begin today in a new journey in the Dharma day by day I can stop to be depress for others no need to be sad just give and be happy This is a big jump but I can begin today with strong intent to follow the Dharma.

  28. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 27, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Rinpoche puts it in such a clear and lucid way , if we expect one day of mantra / om mani padme hum and all our toxins or negativity we have accumulated goes a way that does not make sense. But as how rinpoche broke it down, if we start to have dharma, we start to have a different mind and outlook altogether. All our actions does start with the mind and if we are even willing to entertain the thought that we could have been wrong and want to change that is very powerful thought in our minds. What rinpoche pointed out is that when we come into dharma, there will be changes. In the lamrim the BUddhas pay more homage to our initial small change than the bigger changes we experience in dependance on the small changes in our minds in the first place.

  29. Ac17 on Feb 20, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    Not easy to kick our habituation out off the door once and for all. But rather than sitting down not doing anything, it is best to roll up the sleeves and get working on it.

    Nobody can help us, beside ourselves. Along that way am sure we will encounter various difficulties.
    Anger, frustration, laziness and so on…but we must learn to counter negative emotions positively. If we do that perhaps we are transforming while learning how to transform.

    Thank You Rinpoche

  30. Li Kheng on Feb 10, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this patient teaching. The kindness of Rinpoche and the 3 Jewels is once again displayed in this video. Rinpoche, the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha work compassionately with the limitations we impose upon ourselves by accepting that “we need more time to change”.

    I agree with May that the speedy path is certainly “better” than taking our time because time passes quickly and many things can happen within the short time frame of a split second. For example: How many times did we regret simply because we procrastinated? How many times did we miss our chance to tell someone we loved them because we thought we had the time? How many lives can be lost or come to be in a second?

    Nevertheless, Rinpoche is very kind, wise and skilful to teach this more feasible approach of taking a step at a time in today’s degenerate age. However, we must not take the kindness of our Guru for granted and still work for the fastest possible change by being the best of who we can be.

  31. Irene on Feb 10, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    The best change in onself is without knowing one has changed until one is told you are changed for the better.

  32. henry ooi on Feb 10, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    I love this post! Short, direct and compelling teaching right to the core yet set against a psychedelic background.

    Change of negative habits is a challenge that I have been and am still striving for. Not easy but little by little, day by day, I get happy when I see subtle changes in me. Harder still is not to revert to negative habits. But I will persevere.

  33. Han on Feb 10, 2012 at 12:40 am

    great video, simple and easy to understand….

    THE CHANGE HAS TO COME FROM YOU. LEARNING AND APPLYING UNDER ALL DIFFICULT SITUATIONS….
    APPLY DHARMA , DHARMA IS WHEN YOU GET RESULT…
    We call dharma only we have transformations, challenge negative to positive…..

  34. lucy yap on Feb 9, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    Learning,applying and one hundred per cent targeting the mind with the Dharma.Assassin of the ego.The ego that brings us unhappiness.Along with that we do Dharma work and our Guru Yoga to support and as a practice to collect merit.
    I will remember this Rinpoche and apply it to the best of my ability.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching.

  35. May on Feb 9, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Change equates to this formula: 2+2 (two plus two) always equal to 4 but when we change to this: 8/2 (eight divide by two) also equals to 4 with the same result. However, the formula is different.

    If we want result that comes with happiness, we need to use the “dharma” formula ie. do dharma homework, take dharma lessons, put in effort, learn and apply them and see the changes in us (our mind, speech and action).

    If we work harder and faster, we see quicker changed results because we meet more obstacles and learned how to overcome them quicker and move on quicker to do more. Kind of like a cycle.

    If we take our sweet time to wait to change, our change and progress will be much slower as we meet lesser challenges and do not get to see the result soon, we may give up on the way and lose our sight on the final goal.

    So I prefer the quicker path – meet more challenges, learned quickly and move on to the next level quickly.

  36. William on Feb 9, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching. It has come at the RIGHT time. Learn and Apply to get results.

  37. Mc on Feb 9, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    This is a very encouraging video because all too often I feel that I am not transforming as fast as I can. It is only when we really want to change that we realize how deeply habituated we care. However, it is the daily application of the dharma and the constant reminder as to why we must transform and the sincere motivation to want to transform that gets us through the failures.

    “Dharma is when we get results”. That statements makes the difference in my mind as to what Dharma actually is. So often I forget and think that the mere practice of Dharma is Dharma. I should be looking for the results.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  38. Sonny Gardner on Feb 9, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Motivated! Thank you Dear Sir! Namaste.

  39. Thierry Janssens on Feb 9, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this short yet deep teaching.

    I have highlighted the following:

    Patience. How can we expect immediate result from Dharma practice? We have used many years to habituate ourselves to worldly habits, it will also take time to change these habits and create new habits of Dharma. We should set up expectations realistically.

    We should tell ourselves “I will transform, there will be result” but we don’t expect overnight changes.

    The only person that can change me is me. Saints cannot change my mind, only I can change by learning the Dharma and APPLYING it.

    I should not depend on others, I should be a support for others not a burden, in worldly and in Dharma.

    Learning and applying Dharma is the secret, learning only is not enough.

    I should apply the Dharma one day at the time, one month, one year, and be confident that I am changing.
    I become calmer, happier, I can accept more difficult situations and I can accept it for others, for a higher purpose.

    Change is when I am always depressed and I stop it, I stop burdening others an focus on helping others, and I work hard to become a better person.

    Change is starting a new train of thought, and I make today the beginning of tomorrow’s success, not the result of yesterday’s failures.

    Change is challenging my mind, and turn the negative into positive.

    Change is making no one around me in fear of me.

    Change is “I will be a light for others”.

    Change is being a murderer of my egoistical mind.

    When I change people around will also change.

  40. Victor Phang on Feb 9, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche:
    Thanks for the teaching. That is exactly what I’m always reminding myself – “The most effective transformation is not available in any scripture but it is written all the time on my action”.
    Please correct and guide me if I’m wrong.
    Thank you very much and take good care 🙂
    With love,
    VP

  41. Adeline on Feb 9, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Thank you for the sharing, I do agree in the article say man are responsible for everything in their life. In simply way man are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Only man use the reason and conscience with which they are endowed to act with humanity toward human, animal and planet.

    I truly agree with this article. Every single action that man has to do and done has to connect to one another for perfection in this world.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for telling us this story for us to learn from it. Rinpoche gives a lot of advice and instructions to many people and students to help them. However, no all of the recipient of Rinpoche’s kindness will be willing to go all the way with Rinpoche’s advice and instructions even though it is for our own good. Some will stick all the way but some will stop halfway due to their laziness and fears due to the lack of faith in Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche will not give any advice that will harm us. Sometimes, the instructions might seem to be harming us or unreasonable, but we have to have faith in Rinpoche that eventually it will be beneficial for us in the long run.

    It is very good to know about the origin and the story of the Buddhist deity. The story of Methar shows us how the Tibetan leadership has been operating since the older time, how powerful highly attained lamas are and how an evil spirit can be subdued to do good to help others.

    Power and money are what the Tibetan leadership is interested in. They will make false accusations on someone to take over someone’s wealth and power, like in the case of Demo Rinpoche and Methar. Methar turned into an angry spirit after he was killed. However, due to the power of Serkong Rinpoche and his deep Dharma imprint, Methar was subdued and agreed to give his service to Kache Marpo.

    Kyabje Zong Rinpoche: Birth, Death & Bardo

    Birth, death and bardo: what are these three things? How do people die? We have to understand what we mean by birth, death and bardo in general. We must know how the bardo is entered. We die, go into bardo, take birth, again die going yet again into bardo. There is an unending cycle of the three; no end to it at all. It is useful to develop aversion to Samsara (or Cyclic Existence) and very good for practice to know this.

    People often relate witchcraft to evil practice. However, in this modern time, no one is penalised for practising witchcraft. It is not a main stream religious practice and people can practise it freely.

    Therefore, it is very ridiculous for the Tibetan leadership to penalise Dorje Shugden practitioners because of their faith. Dorje Shugden practice started about 300-400 years ago and it has never been a threat to national security, there is no reason it should be banned. May the ban be lifted soon and no more discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    The Rain Stopper

    A few years ago, I think in 2005, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and a few of us went to Kathmandu, Nepal to buy Buddha statues for our outlets in Malaysia, it was around July and it was a rainy season in Nepal, so it rained almost daily during the daytime and it made the shopping trip somewhat troublesome, because the statue shops in Nepal are mostly in Boudanath and it was not a covered shopping mall, you have to go from shop to shop in the rain. We were staying in Hyatt Regency Kathmandu then and it was raining quite heavily as we were waiting at the lobby for the taxis to bring us to Boudanath, Rinpoche commented that it was another tiresome rainy day, and he said to us “You guys wait here, I am going to talk to my friends”, then Rinpoche left the seat, walked towards the hotel entrance, and start staring at the gloomy sky while mumbling something. The few of us who looked at each other, and all turned to stared at Rinpoche, this lasted for about 5 minutes, then Rinpoche walked back to us and said “It’s ok now, I just talked to them and they are OK with it, we can leave soon.” True enough, in about 5 minutes, the downpour turned into drizzle, and we hopped into the taxis, by the time the taxis were speeding along the bustling streets of Kathmandu, the rain stopped completely.

    It is extremely worrying to know that parts of America such as Texas and Florida are experiencing the impact of powerful hurricanes. The horrendous natural disasters have destroyed thousands of homes, businesses, offices and facilities in these areas. Sadly however, during such disasters, animals are often the first ones to be left behind, and saving the life of a human takes precedence over the life of an animal. The same thing happened during the recent Hurricane Harvey in Florida. But this time around, what was most disturbing was the fact that animals were left behind to die during the disaster.

    The helpless animals, such as dogs in this case, have had to suffer immensely during the storms. As can be seen in the article, there is an uproar regarding dogs being tied up during the hurricanes which made it impossible for them to escape. In fact, the authorities may have encouraged people to leave their pets behind in some areas, but they should not have been tied up and left to suffer from the strong winds and rain. No one wants to be put in such a position, and neither do animals.

    The mere mention of the Lizard Man conjures creepy images of mutant-like humanoid reptilians. Interestingly, despite possible disapproval from the grammar police, the term “Lizard Man” is used interchangeably to refer to a broad spectrum of bipedal hominid-like reptilian creatures (sometimes also referred to as “Homo-subterreptus) instead of just one specific cryptid. Thus, reported sightings of Lizard Man vary from scaly humans to large bipedal lizards, small dinosaurs and everything else in-between.

    It is no surprise that many theories have been put forward in an attempt to crystallise the undefined nature and origin of the Lizard Man. Essentially, there are two leading theories – one based on evolution and the other on extra-terrestrials.

    Buddha Shakyamuni gave three reasons as to why He had chosen Kushinagar (in today’s northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh) to pass away:

    It was the proper venue for teaching the Maha-Sudassana Sutra (Story of the Great King of Glory).
    Subhadda, whom Buddha Shakyamuni felt still needed to be given teachings, was there. Subhadda consequently became the last monk to be ordained by Buddha Shakyamuni; upon meditating on the teachings received directly from the Buddha, he swiftly became an arhat (perfected) and entered Parinirvana shortly before Buddha Shakyamuni.
    Buddha Shakyamuni foresaw that His disciples would argue over the sharing of His relics. He wanted Doha, a wise and respected old Brahmin of Kushinagar, to mediate the disciples’ disagreements.

    On June 21, 2015, Kechara had the privilege and great merits to witness an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche briefly describes here the history and background of trances, and what happened on the day itself.

    For the first time in history, a Tibetan oracle had the invocation done for the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden to enter or take trance, and there were no Tibetan monks involved. It was all local, lay Malaysians who did the invocation. Our people practiced very hard and diligently with a lot of sincerity and commitment for many weeks, to do the chanting, to learn the rituals and to ensure the procedure was done right. And everything was a great success.

    On the fateful day as preordained, we escorted Chojela to the prayer hall where there were 700 people (by invitation only) waiting to witness and to get blessings of the trance. We then assisted him in dressing in the correct regalia of the official oracle, including the hat and the boots. The instruments of trance such as the sword and spears were nearby along with the noose. The invocation was done and Dorje Shugden entered very smoothly into the oracle. He immediately got up as per tradition and did a very special Vajra dance in our prayer hall, which is the dance of clearing the obstacles.

    The crow pheasant is a beautiful bird, I saw this bird just yesterday. It is good to know that it is a good omen. It somehow gives me an assurance that things will only get better. Sometimes when people are lost and not sure if they have made the right decision, seeing signs like this can really calm people’s mind.

    The 14th Dalai Lama’s prayer to Dorje Shugden

    This is the prayer to Dorje Shugden as composed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama at Dungkar Monastery of Domo Geshe Rinpoche. It is good to recite daily or when in need of help. You can see in the prayer His Holiness enthrones Dorje Shugden as the “supreme collected nature of all Gurus and Protective Deities and requests to grant siddhis” (attainments). Ordinary spirits cannot grant siddhis therefore in this prayer, Dalai Lama recognized Dorje Shugden as a superior being who can grant two types of siddhis. Ordinary and extra-ordinary siddhis. His Holiness surely could not be tricked by a spirit. His Holiness saw Dorje Shugden as a superior being embodying the gurus and Protective Deities who can grant two types of siddhis.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
