You do not need to take other people’s pain and suffering into your heart. This world is filled with enough suffering without trying to spread it. Rather, touch the pain and suffering you find and meet it with with love and spaciousness. That is what we call compassion.

Meditate, meditate, meditate. Daily. Practice mindfulness. Continuously. These are the tools we have been given to manage our sanity within the context of an unhinged society. It’s an opportunity few really take. But I am telling you that if you take this opportunity, you wont regret it.

We must stop trying to know each other and ourselves through judgement. Not because it is wrong but because it does not work. You don’t end up seeing the people anymore, you only see the judgements. And if you live with a negative and critical mind, you will be surrounded by a hell of your own making.
- Lazy Yogi

Detachment comes when you discover that your happiness, your peace, your joy, are nothing else but your Self and it is found nowhere else but within.

Then detachment naturally happens toward the transient play of this world and body. It doesn’t mean that you have distain for them or aloofness or rejection. It simply indicates that you are no longer seeking the right things in the wrong places.

As for guilt, it is an inefficient way of trying to get rid of suffering. Perhaps you did something “bad” or regret an outcome for which you feel responsible. That is the result of unskillful action and understanding. Instead of feeling bad about it until time lessens the memory’s weight, use that shitty feeling to fertilize growth. Don’t just learn from the specific past but also never repeat it again.

If there is something you feel guilty about and you use that to learn, grow, and never again repeat it, then there is nothing to regret. You have not only lessened the burden of your ignorance on the world but also on yourself. Peace is always possible.

Remember that the only tool you have with which to help the world is yourself. Even if your are well-intentioned but still blinded by the ignorance of separation and ego, your attempts to help others will not be as beneficial as they could be. By practicing meditation, you will learn to help and serve humanity as if humanity were your larger self.“

Namaste :)
