The Best Words and Looks

 :r4wheel:Khenpo Tamgrin Rinpoche:

People experienced birth, age, sickness and death, which is all normal. However advanced a machine is, after running for a long time, it will break down. How can a body avoid sickness? We are just so obsessed! Which part of one’s body is solid from inside to outside?

What is wrong with being aged? It is just normal! Some people do not like aging, annoyed about getting old, even keeping their age a secret. Is there any meaning doing so? Nobody can control it! Some even go for cosmetic surgeries, again and again. But look what they look like now? How good of being natural! Being natural is the most stately and beautiful. Maintain this natural and original state, for that is a pleasure to eye and a pleasure to heart. Some practitioners appear dirty and in rags, but when getting along with them, the bliss emanating from their mind makes people feel quite different.

So, don’t pretend. Be the person you really are. Sometimes you pretended too much. As to speaking, just speak out what you think would be OK. What your mind is like can easily be known just through seeing or hearing, so it is not necessary to speak some good words to disguise yourself. There will be strength when you dare to speak the truth. Although some person might not understand at that time, he will definitely understand afterwards, or even accept it.

Today many people think “not knowing how to pretend” is a weakness, but I don’t think so. If you are not such a kind of person but pretend to be, talking intellectually, it might not be good. As long as your mind is pure and has no vicious thoughts, it would be all right.

What is sincere? What is respectful? It is not to act apparently, but having no vicious thoughts to hurt others. Be natural and try to maintain the original state, it would be just good.
