Advice to Myself ~ Patrul Rinpoche

Stop living a false and empty life.
Drop those deceptions of your own mind
And endless projects that you don’t need!

Don’t make your head spin with the burden
Of strings of ideas that never come true
And endless distracting activities —
They’re just waves on water.
Just keep quiet.
