treino da mente

When someone harms us we can simply distract ourselves with happier thoughts. But this leaves us no less vulnerable the next time around. Suppose, for example, that Joe is a particularly arrogant person. We avoid having anything to do with him. After a while he moves away and we have no more contact with him. Joe no longer triggers our hostility. Now Jack appears and he is just as arrogant. Exactly the same thing happens, because nothing has been learned.The greatest kindness another person can show us is to help transform our minds so that contentment arises more readily from the nature of the mind itself...
