LOVE This Quote from Karmapa on Relationships

 

While prepping the syllabus for my  fall online course via Interdependence Project, The Journey of Relationships, I came across this quote from the Karmapa (head of a major Tibetan Buddhist lineage) on his Facebook page about taking responsibility for our part in relationships:

Real Happiness Challenge: Week 2 - Where Am I?

Like a lot of New Yorkers, I'm a busy person!  Rushing from place to place, answering endless emails, Facebooking, Instagraming, Twittering, drinking coffee, attending meetings, scheduling, writing a class outline while riding the subway, remembering Sharon Salzberg's teaching while walking to work. 

When I get lost in this busy mind, it's hard to break loose - my thoughts flow one to the next in a never-ending stream of associations.   Sometimes I miss my stop or even forget where I'm going.  Where am I?

“DE is a way of doing. DE simply means doing whatever you do in the easiest most relaxed way you can manage which is also the quickest and most efficient way, as you will find as you advance in DE.You can start right now tidying up your flat, moving furniture or books, washing dishes, making tea, sorting papers. Don’t fumble, jerk, grab an object. Drop cool possessive fingers onto it like a gentle old cop making a soft arrest.”
- William S. Burroughs
