Trying to control outer circumstances ~ Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche

We often think the only way to create happiness is to try to control
the outer circumstances of our lives, to try to fix what seems wrong or
to get rid of everything that bothers us. But the real problem lies in
our reaction to those circumstances. What we have to change is the mind
and the way it experiences reality.
