When we realize that our ideas
of good or bad, black or white,
are only labels –
that existence itself is neutral
and only our viewpoint colors it positive or negative –
then we know that the real answer lies in ourselves.
We have to change our patterns of reacting to experience.
For our problems do not lie in what we experience,
but in the attitude we have towards what we experience.
Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche
