My teacher used to say, "Stay in beginner's mind. Never leave beginner's mind," because in beginner's mind, the possibilities are infinite. They're open. Anything can happen. You're open to learn anything you need to learn. If your view of something needs to change, you're open for it to change. Nomatter how deeply you have seen something, nomatter how much you think you know something, stay in beginner's mind. Don't get rigid. Nomatter how great a revelation you may have had, nomatter how great an opening in the core and depth of your being, if you stay in innocence, in the mind that's very light, that never takes its ideas as truth, then there will be a much greater potential for your thoughts, as well as your communications with others, to be naturally inspired.
Meeting you was the best thing that ever happened to me. You made me so happy. I don’t want you to be lost or afraid or anything like that. From here on out, I know things might be hard sometimes. But nomatter what, please don’t ever regret the time we spent together.
I am tired of trying to hold things together that cannot be held. Trying to control what cannot be controlled. I am tired of denying myself what I want for fear of breaking things I cannot fix. They will break nomatter what we do.
Nomatter how little power, it can be used in some way. We might be useless, but at some point, we might turn out useful too. Keep watching, don't get distracted. If the right time comes, even a little power could change the future of the world. That's why we must always be focused and not let that moment slip away.
I’ll always be waiting. Nomatter how many years go by, nomatter how old I get, I’ll always be waiting here for you. One day, they’ll surely cross paths. When that time comes, I definitely won’t let you go without a word.
Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself.
You're going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it's always their actions you should judge them by. It's actions, not words, that matter.
As we stand there, it hits me how quickly everything changes - how life is like peering into a kaleidoscope, and just as you're looking at a gorgeous pattern you think you'd maybe even like to keep around forever, the colors morph into something completely different, and there's not getting back to that first pattern. Nomatter how much you'd like to see it again.
