"Things don't just happen because you have a wish or desire for them to happen, they happen because of a cause that you created. Yet we have built up a wrong logic that believes “if I wish or want it to happen it will”. Sometimes we get lucky and have a few our wishes come true, but most of the time we aren't able to satisfy or meet the expectation of our wish and we experience suffering. If we could better understand Buddha's wisdom that everything in our life comes from a cause then we could take better control of our lives and know how to make our wishes become a reality."

-Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche

"It is impossible to cross the same river. Though it may appear the same, taking a deeper look from the profound wisdom insight of Buddha you can see that the river has changed, you have changed, the environment has changed, so you can never be crossing over the same river because every second things are changing. We view our life as permanent, thinking that everything will stay the same, will always be happy, will always be in good condition. But the reality that Buddha sees is that our life is just like the river and is impermanent."

-Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche
