We Have Everything We Need To Achieve Great Things

These words of wisdom were sent to me by Lama Surya Das.

He says, “We have everything we need to be and achieve great things.”

This statement is very similar to what Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh says, “We have everything we need to be happy in the present moment.” [Read More…]

Both of these great teachers are telling us that how we deal with what is happening right now determines how good we feel about ourselves and our lives. Furthermore, both of them have taught about the nature of interbeing  – the interdependence and interconnection of all things.

Lama Surya Das We have everything we need to be and achieve great things. Everything is within; what we seek, we Are. It’s not what happens to us but what we make of it that makes all the difference and determines our experience, character, karma and destiny. Although I believe in both nature and nurture, still– It’s not the hand we’re dealt but how we play the card which makes our life. Here is freedom, autonomy within interdependence, and the secret of self-mastery and evolutionary inner transformation in the palm of your hand.   Emaho!

With love,
Lama Surya Das
