I don’t enjoy anything anymore. I can’t remember the last time I had any fun or felt any joy in a social setting.

Here are some nice words from a book about Tibetan Buddhism that my mom’s psycho cousin send us in the mail along with a letter full of scribbles:

Just like a blind man

Discovering jewels in a heap of trash

Likewise by some coincidence

I have found the spirit within me.

It is the supreme elixir

That overcomes the lord of death;

It is the inexhaustible treasure

That eliminates all poverty in the world.

It is the supreme medicine

That cures the world’s disease

It is the evergreen tree that shelters all beings

Wandering tired on the road of life.

It is the universal bridge

That frees being from wretched lives

It is the rising moon of the mind

That dispels the torment of addictions.
