A BEAUTIFUL MIND

” The pure white lotus flower blooms out of the muddy pond, the fragrant sandalwood grows from the soil, the graceful cherry blossoms come forth from the trees, the beautiful Yang-Kuei-fei was born a maidservant, and the moon rises from behind the mountain to shed light on them. Misfortune comes from one’s mouth and ruins him, but fortune comes from one’s mind and makes him worthy of respect”    (New Year’s Gosho; MWND, Vol 1, p.272)” Kemurnian bunga teratai putih tumbuh dari kolam lumpur yang keruh, aroma harum cendana berasal dari dalam tanah, keanggunan bunga sakura keluar dari pepohonan, si jelita Yang-Kuei-fei lahir dari seorang pembantu rumah tangga dan sinar rembulan muncul dari balik punggung gunung untuk menebarkan cahaya. Ketidakberuntungan seseorang berawal dari ucapan dan menghancurkannya, sedangkan rejeki datang dari perasaan hati dan membuatnya dihargai.”
