Example text

My early training and the experiences that followed have shown me that what may at first appear as darkness is, in essence, nothing. more substantial than a shadow cast by the mind's true light. 32 2 THE PROBLEM IS THE SOLUTION And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. S. ELIOT, "Little Gidding" NOT LONG AGO I visited a wax museum in Paris, where I saw a very lifelike statue of the Dalai Lama. I examined it carefully from all angles, since His Holiness is a person I know fairly well.

Not wanting to get in the way, I started to step aside-,-at which point the woman screamed and the man with the camera dropped his jaw almost to the ground. Because the light in the museum was rather dim, they'd thought I was part of the display: a wax figure of a happy little monk standing beside the Dalai Lama. Once the couple recovered from the shock of seeing what appeared to be a wax statue suddenly springing to life, we all had a nice laugh together and parted company on a very pleasant note.

Robert Frost, "A Servant to Servants" I'd never thought of the emotional storms I suffered as evidence of the power of my own mind. Or rather, I'd heard teachings to that effect, especially from my father, who would frequently point out that disturbing emotions are actually expressions of the mind-in the same way that intense heat, for example, is a product or expression of the sun. But like most people when they first start the practice of examining their minds, I was more concerned with getting rid of the thoughts and feelings that upset me than with actually looking directly at their source.
