Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.
— Vincent Van Gogh (via akumamatata)
Humor allows us to see that ultimately things don’t make sense. The only thing that truly makes sense is letting go of anything we continue to hold on to. Our ego-mind and emotions are a dramatic illusion. Of course, we all feel that they’re real: my drama, your drama, our confrontations. We create these elaborate scenarios and then react to them. But there is nothing really happening outside our mind! This is karma’s cosmic joke. You can laugh about the irony of this, or you can stick with your scenario. It’s your choice.
— Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche (via whimsicalele)
