From Belief Net, "Daily Buddhist Wisdom" newsletter, comes this quote:
"We are not compelled to meditate by some outside agent, by other people, or by God. Rather, just as we are responsible for our own suffering, so are we solely responsible for our own cure. We have created the situation in which we find ourselves, and it is up to us to create the circumstances for our release."-Lama Thubten Yeshe, "Wisdom Energy"
