    The term incense now refers to any material used to produce a fragrant aroma when burned, but it originally referred specifically to gum resins exuded by Boswellia trees. As the word began to be used more generally, these gum resins became known as frankincense, meaning true (frank) incense.

    We can think of our conscious minds, the ostensible engines of perception, as a flashlight in a very huge, dark building. Level upon level of experience awaits us in that building, opportunities for countless experiences of perception, but our flashlight can only illuminate a very small circle at any one time.

    To be praised for meager or noncompetitive talent, just because you are loved, does you a disservice in any meritocracy, such as the society in which we live. Whenever that happens, you risk leading a deluded life, where the correspondence between what you deserve for your efforts and what you think you deserve is lost. The value of this “reality check” cannot be overemphasized.

    Consciousness is expanded awareness, like a flowing ocean, while Mind is like frozen water, or the white crest of an infinite wave – far more limited in its ability to perceive

    A Tibetan story tells of two brothers, one with one yak, and one with 99 yaks. The brother with one yak was happy. All he needed was one yak. The brother with 99 yaks always worried about keeping track of and managing his yaks, yet was obsessed with wanting more. One day he asked his brother, “One yak isn’t much different than none. I have 99 yaks, but 100 yaks are really something. Will you give me your yak?” The brother easily gave the yak away, illustrating that the more you have, the more you want, and the less you have, the more easily you can give. What a great lesson for kids.
