Nothing to gain and nothing to lose ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Look at the actual nature of harm itself: it is ungraspable. Like a drawing made on the water´s surface. When you truly experience that, resentment vanishes of its own accord. As soon as the fiery waves of thoughts subside, everything becomes like empty sky, which has nothing to gain and nothing to lose.
