Corrosion begins as soon as creation begins ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Wishing for “happily ever after” is nothing more than a desire for permanence in disguise. Fabricating concepts such as “eternal love,” “everlasting happiness,” and “salvation” generates more evidence of impermanence. Our intention and the result are at odds. We intend to establish ourselves and our world, but we forget that the corrosion begins as soon as creation begins. What we aim for is not decay, but what we do leads directly to decay.

Pelapukan dimulai begitu penciptaan dimulai ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

Berharap untuk “bahagia selamanya” tidak lebih dari keinginan tersembunyi  ingin kekekalan. Konsep – konsep yang dibuat seperti “cinta abadi,” “kebahagiaan abadi,” dan “keselamatan” menghasilkan lebih banyak bukti ketidakkekalan. Niat kita dan hasilnya saling bertentangan. Kita bermaksud untuk membangun diri dan dunia kita, tapi kita lupa bahwa pelapukan dimulai begitu penciptaan dimulai. Apa yang kita mau bukanlah pelapukan, tapi apa yang kita lakukan mengarah langsung ke pelapukan.
