A Quote by unknown on advice, children, correction, jobs, parenthood, rules, and work

No one can say the job of bringing up children is easy. There are no perfect rules which will work or are even correct for all children. All the advice given must be adjusted for the particular child and the particular parents.

A Quote by Sogyal Rinpoche on certainty, correction, doubt, effort, mind, nature, needs, questions, rest, and understanding

{While meditating} I sit quietly and rest in the nature of mind; I don't question or doubt whether I am in the "correct" state or not. There is no effort, only rich understanding, wakefulness, and unshakable certainty. When I am in the nature of mind, the ordinary mind is no longer there. There is no need to sustain or confirm a sense of being: I simply am.

A Quote by Seung Sahn on clarity, correction, life, mind, past, and reflection

In the past, kong-an (koan) practicing meant checking someone's enlightenment. Now we use kong-ans to make our lives correct. . . . You must use kong-ans to take away your opinions. When you take away your opinions, your mind is clear like space, which means from moment to moment you can reflect any situation and respond correctly and meticulously.

Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly. After that, it will be possible for you to sublimate them.
