A Quote by Dan

Now I realize that I had, in a sense, been sleeping all those years and just dreaming I was awake...I'd always believed that a life of quality, enjoyment, and wisdom were my human birthright and would be automatically bestowed upon me as time passed.  I never suspected that I would hae to learn how to live.

A Quote by Dan on responsibility, circumstance, life, consciousness, consciously, health, and happiness

It is better for you to take responsibility for your life as it is, instead of blaming others, or circumstances, for your predicament.  As your eyes open, you'll see that your state of health, happiness, and every circumstance of your life has been, in large part, arranged by you -- consciously or unconsciously.

A Quote by Dan

"There are three kinds of people in this world:  Those who make things happen, those who watch what happens, and those who wonder what happened."

A Quote by Dan on suffering, pain, life, change, reality, and mind

If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is a law, and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.

A Quote by Dan on enlightenment, story, and milarepa

Milarepa had searched everywhere for enlightenment, but could find no answer - until one day, he saw an old man walking slowly down a mountain path, carrying a heavy sack. Immediately, Milarepa sensed that this old man knew the secret he had been desperately seeking for many years.

'Old man, please tell me what you know. What is enlightenment?'

The old man smiled at hime for a moment, and swung the heavy burden off his shoulders, and stood straight.

'Yes, I see!' cried Milarepa. 'My everlasting gratitude. But please, one question more. What is after enlightenment?'

Smiling again, the old man picked up the sack once again, lunged it over his shoulders, steadied his burden, and continued on his way.

A Quote by Dan on pain, suffering, stress, resistance, dan millman, and way of the peaceful warrior

Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering. Stress happens when your mind resists what is...The only problem in your life is your mind's resistance to life as it unfolds.

A Quote by Dan on dan millman, way of the peaceful warrior, wake up, and terminal illness

Wake up! If you knew for certain you had a terminal illness--if you had little time left to live--you would waste precious little of it! Well, I'm telling you...you do have a terminal illness: It's called birth. You don't have more than a few years left. No one does! So be happy now, without reason--or you will never be at all.
