We all want to get rid of wild jumping mind, chasing behind all what moves. No peace in such! There is a saying regarding practice perseverance; vividly clear in whatever moving wind as "a mountain that cannot be shaken by no any wind".
Spending your time with true spiritual friends will fill you with love for all beings.

Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones-all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

:smile:
The self loathes suffering and loves the causes of suffering. It stupidly wages war in the name of peace. It wishes for enlightenment but detests the path to enlightenment. It wishes to work as a socialist but live as a capitalist. When the self feels lonely, it desires friendship. Its possessiveness of those it loves manifests in passion that can lead to aggression. Its supposed enemies—such as spiritual paths designed to conquer the ego — are often corrupted and recruited as the self’s ally.
