ive been only practicing dharma for two years, but i regret that i smoke cigarettes. and i could regret that i havent been able to integrate and become one with teachings, in that sense ive wasted a lot of time, and i regret that i havent been disciplining my self in some sense on the other hand i think that this more free and relaxed and open way of relating with life and dharma is somewhat fruitful. i regret that im not milarepa.
but otherwise im quite happy and not regretful. maybe i should me more regretful for all the negative things that i have done in life....
If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....
In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….
