Thought of the week

By sincerely training in the meditation practice of exchanging suffering for happiness, you will eventually become capable of actually taking on others' illnesses and curing them and giving them your happiness in reality. Moreover, those with harmful intentions, even evil spirits who try to steal people's life force, will be powerless to harm either you or anyone else if you exchange their suffering and hatred with your happiness and peace.
