"When no one listens, no one tells, and when no one tells, no one learns." So goes a Tibetan proverb—unfortunately, a prophetic one—that serves as a chilling ba...ckdrop to this documentary about the the decline of young Tibetans learning the region's language and an inspiring group of university students seeking not only to halt the trend, but to reverse it. http://tricy.cl/1tFDYVe

THERE’S NO SUBSTANCE TO YOUR THOUGHTS
When thoughts arise it might occur to you to wonder where they come from. Where do they come from? It seems as if they com...e from nowhere. You’re just faithfully following your breath and—Wham!—you’re in Hawaii surfing. Where did it come from? And where does it go? Big drama, big drama’s happening, big, big drama. And it’s 9:30 in the morning. “Oooh. Wow! This is extremely heavy.” A car horn honks, and suddenly you’re not in that drama anymore, you’re in another drama.
I was once instructed to meditate on thoughts. I investigated the nature of thought for two whole months. I can tell you firsthand that you can never find a thought. There is nothing there of substance, but with our minds we make it Extremely Big Deal.
