If we could have confidence in this, it would radically change our lives. Right now, instinctively we assume that the anger, the fears, the depression are at the core of our being.
The skill we need to learn is to hear those thoughts and then to change them. But the trouble is we don’t notice what the mind is doing until our body feels it, and that’s too late.
For Buddha, what’s in my mind at this moment is mine, regardless of what triggered it; it’s mine, it’s my jealousy, my love, my compassion. This consciousness is one’s own. Awareness of this gets deeper and deeper and deeper as we go along in our practice. We really learn to own what we think and feel.
And therefore we learn to change it. As Lama Zopa Rinpoche says, “We can mold our mind into any shape we like”.
