sabrinamari: (Daily practice)
Correct all wrongs with one intention.

Commentary: "Wrongs" here refers to difficult circumstances that we encounter. Our intention is to use these situations to develop compassion for all the beings who also suffer from difficulties and to aspire to breathe in their pain with the practice of tonglen.

sabrinamari: (Funny!)
I have just reached my quota of intensity for the week. I know it's only Tuesday, but what can I do? The quota has been filled. If you would like me to grow as a human being, you can try to get me to do it, but only if you are wearing a clown nose.

All serious discussions must now be preceded by internet cat videos.

Don't even call me unless you intend to start the conversation with a joke.

By humoring me in this---literally---you will be showing me respect and love.

And along these lines: http://phdcomic.livejournal.com/246560.html
