Therefore, encourage yourself to study the Dharma and realize its wisdom in your daily life. From the moment you wake up each day – and even during sleep – make every sensation and thought your spiritual practice.
You can contact the teachings not only on the level of words and concepts, but internally, within daily experience.
Your own frustration can push you toward a way to ease all pain and conflict. The impermanence of everything that matters to you, the transience of the relationships and things you most cherish can inspire you to search for something that cannot be shaken loose.
And when you have found this great power and direction through the teachings, you will no longer have to search for satisfaction: you will find all you need within your own heart.
