After I read Dreaming Me by Jan Willis, I picked this up when I saw it at the used bookstore because Lama Yeshe was one of Jan's teachers.

This volume is combined with Make Your Mind an Ocean. Edited from Lama's talks in Melbourne, Australia, in 1979, this is another lesson in analytical (checking) meditation and knowing your own mind. Highly recommended.

“When you’re among peaceful, generous, happy people, you’re inclined to feel happy and peaceful yourself. When you’re among angry, aggressive people, you tend to become like them. The human mind is like a mirror. A mirror does not discriminate but simply reflects whatever’s before it, no matter whether it’s horrible or wonderful.” 0 likes
