“Although living beings wish to be free from suffering,

They run straight towards the causes of suffering

And although they wish for happiness

Out of Ignorance they destroy it like a foe”

Shantideva ~ Guide to the Bodhisattvas Way of Life

In our ordinary life, even though we work very hard to find happiness it remains elusive for us, whereas problems seem to come naturally, without any effort. Since we often develop negative states of mind that easily destroy our happiness, we need to change what we are doing with our mind.  If instead, we can learn how to partner with our own peaceful and positive states of mind, then we will come to understand that our mind can be our most powerful ally and a sincere and reliable friend.
