Even on hot summer days when my mind could not tolerate the heat, I surrendered my discomfort and it lessened the pain. The heat became bearable. It may have been a little hot out, but I no longer had to put up with my suffocating annoyance.

Jae Woong Kim in Polishing the DIamond, Enlightening the Mind by Jae Woong Kim, His Holiness The Dalai Lama


To Practice This Thought:
The next day that it is unbearably hot outside, relinquish your struggle against the heat.
