Maintain the state of undistractedness, and distractions will fly away. Dwell alone, and you shall find the Friend. Take the lowest place, and you shall reach the highest. Hasten slowly, and you shall soon arrive. Renounce all worldly goals, and you shall reach the highest Goal. If you follow this unfrequented path, you will find the shortest way. If you realize Sunyata (the absolute Emptiness), compassion will arise within your hearts; and when you lose all differentiation between yourself and others, then you will be fit to serve others.
--Tibetan Yogi Jetsun Milarepa (c. 1052-c. 1135 CE)
"I again realized that everything is impermanent and time is relative. You can never, ever, ever be in a permanent relationship. Being with somebody for 3 minutes is no different than being with somebody for 50 years, when you see the big picture. And being by myself for 3 minutes is no different than being by myself for 50 years. When you realize this, loneliness ceases. And you realize that you are by yourself exactly at the right time and you are with people exactly at the right time. When you give up control and worry, then everything and everybody comes exactly when and where you need it. Everything. "
