Six words to live by

Trying to live by this everyday. Being in the now and appreciating the moment is the key.

Don’t recall. Don’t imagine. Don’t Think. Don’t examine. Don’t control. Rest.

Tilopa ( 988–1069 } passed on this advice on  mahāmudrā meditation to Naropa, his successor.

  In the original Tibetan it contains just six words. The following translation attempts to tease out their full meaning:

Let go of what has passed.
Let go of what may come.
Let go of what is happening now.
Don’t try to figure anything out.
Don’t try to make anything happen.
Relax, right now, and rest.

Translation: Ken McLeod in Unfettered Mind
