"Some think they are growing older,
Others just keep glowing bolder.
Some notice their skin is sagging ,
Others just notice marks of Sage-ing.
Some think their life will soon be done ,
Others know that the fun has just begun."

"If you work on your mind with your mind how can you avoid an immense confusion?"
 The problem is, we don’t like the obvious samsaric (worldly) pain, but we do like the samsaric glory.
   This samsaric glory, samsaric gain, samsaric beauty which is like time bomb, which will explode       sooner or later. 
         That is what we need to really concentrate and put the lower value, or no value at all.
        Basically it is easier for us to see no value in pain and anxiety. Much more difficult to see no value in samsaric glory.         (Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche)
