When I paint I feel this extreme positive force that is telling me "the universe wants my FULL self" the universe needs us. And just as long as we are better people than we were yesterday, each day is meaningful. I have been practicing mindfulness awareness meditation. Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is amazing. He writes about how the Buddha, the awakened one, "woke up and realized he didn't have to try to be something other than what he was." So the complete teaching of Buddhism is to re-discover who we are. In Mindfulness Meditation we are completely absorbed in the fabric of life, the fabric of the moment. We might feel that thinking about the past or future makes our life richer, but by not paying attention to the immediate situation we are actually missing our life. There's nothing we can do about the past, we can only go over it again and again and the future is completely unknown. So the practice the mindfulness is the practice of being a live! -Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
