Red Tara = Kurukulla

Worrying is never helpful. Similar to other self-harming habits like smoking, worry is debilitating. Predator spirits feed on anguish. For them it is a tasty snack. When they find a nice feeding source, they hang around looking for more treats.

Gospel of Matthew 6:25-27 "therefore, i tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"

~~ Narabharana , 143

"There is just a difference of a dot between

chinta (= worry) and

chita (= funeral pyre).

Chita burns a life-less being

while, strange as it may appear,

chinta burns even the living one ."

~~ Narabharana , 59

"There is no worse emaciation of the body than worry."

The Sanity We Are Born With: A Buddhist Approach to Psychology

by Chögyam Trungpa, page 166

"Confusion is two-sided; it creates a need, a demand for sanity.

This hungry nature of confusion is very powerful and important.

The demand for relief or sanity that is contained within confusion is, in fact, the beginning point of sanity.

That is what moved Buddha to sit beneath the bodhi tree twenty-five hundred years ago - to confront his confusion and find its source."

~~ Padma Purana , 2.26.158

"Of a man overcome by worries of his family,

learning, good conduct and (all) other qualities disappear

along with the body

like water in an unbaked pitcher."

Abandon Thought and Think a Mantra Form

Tsong-ka-pa and H.H. Dalai Lama. (1987).

Deity Yoga in Action and Performance Tantra. Jeffrey Hopkins (Ed.). :

"... For one who abides in thought, Feats do not arise.

Therefore abandon thought

And think a mantra form.

  • 'Abandon thought' refers to the eradication of thought conceiving self [inherent existence] through the wisdom of selflessness; it does not mean to stop any and all types of thought.
  • 'Think a mantra form' means to meditate on a deity. The measure of firmness in deity yoga is indicated by 'whether going, standing, or sitting is always immovable though moving about'.

When one has attained the capacity to hold the mind on the divine body in all types of behaviour -- whether in meditative equipoise or not -- without moving to something else , one has the capacity to remove the pride of ordinariness."

Delusions, dissatisfaction, and anxiety

H. H. Dalai Lama, Path to Bliss: A Practical Guide to Stages of Meditation :

"If association with delusions could give you happiness,

you should now have the best and most satisfactory form of happiness,

because of your long association with delusions.

But this is not the case. All of us are always under the sufferings of dissatisfaction and anxiety.

The very start of our lives is marked with suffering,

  • our lives end with suffering,

and during our lives we go through all sorts of problems and miseries.

Such is the nature of samsara , cyclic existence.

The underlying cause of all this is that we are under the influence of contaminated body, actions, and delusions."

Compassion is the daily norm; anger and aggression are"news "

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso (2003). The Compassionate Life .

"Some of my friends have told me that while love and compassion are marvelous and good, they are not really very relevant.

Our world, they say, is not a place where such virtues have much influence or power.

They claim that anger and hatred are so much a part of human nature that humanity will always be dominated by them. I do not agree.

  • We humans have existed in our present form for about a hundred thousand years.

  • I believe that if during this time the human mind had been primarily controlled by anger and hatred, our population would have decreased.

  • But today, despite all our wars, we find that the human population is greater than ever.

This clearly indicates to me that while anger and aggression are surely present, love and compassion predominate in the world.

This is why what we call" news " is composed of mostly unpleasant or tragic events; compassionate activities are so much a part of daily life that they are taken for granted and therefore are largely ignored.

...We are, after all, social animals. Without human friendship, without the human smile, our lives become miserable. The loneliness becomes unbearable. Such human interdependence is a natural law--that is to say, according to natural law, we depend on others to live.

If, under certain circumstances, because something is wrong inside us, our attitude toward our fellow human beings on whom we depend becomes hostile, how can we hope to attain peace of mind or a happy life?

According to basic human nature or natural law, interdependence -- giving and receiving affection -- is the key to happiness."

Louise L. Hay. (orig. ed., 1984). You Can Heal Your Life . p. 179

from THE LIST by Louise Hay:

Anxiety =

  • "not trusting the flow and the process of life.

Remedy =

  • "I love and approve of myself and I trust the process of life. I am safe."
"And now my friends,

all that is true, all that is noble,

all that is just and pure,

all that is loveable and gracious,

whatever is excellent and admirable -

fill all your thoughts with these things."

~~ Epistle to the Philippians 4:8
