- Remove the layer of concept that sits between you and the reality of the present moment. To touch the present moment, you have to let the layer of concept drop away. To do this, you first have to be able to stop. You have to stop both body and mind. When your mind stops racing, when you allow yourself to be in one place, you can be truly present in the here and now.
- All of the harm, fear, and suffering in the world are caused by attachment to the self. Let go of the self and let go of fear and suffering - and stop doing harm.
- The Sanskrit word karma simply means action: be sensitive to the results of yours. Every action ripples through the community of souls - its effects more or less widespread depending on the action's nature. Make efforts to ensure that your ripples will have positive effects when they make landfall.
