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".
“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. When we think that the rope is a snake, we are scared, but once we see that we are looking at a rope, our fear dissipates. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Likewise, mentally fabricating self and others, we generate attachment and aversion.” ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
