Inspiration & insights along the path toward happiness & wisdom
“A feeling of aversion or attachment toward something is your clue that there’s work to be done.”
“Your soul doesn’t care what you do for a living - and when your life is over, neither will you. Your soul cares only about what you are being while you are doing whatever you are doing.”
“There is deep wisdom within our very flesh, if we can only come to our senses and feel it.”
That's excellent! Do you also adhere to the classical Buddhist teachings stressed in Theravada about reliance and self-effort in order to attain salvation?
“If our heart is closed, if our heart is made of stone, then the stones will end up in our hands, and we will be ready to throw them at someone.”
Which form of Buddhist meditation do you practice?
“Peace can exist only in the present moment. It is ridiculous to say “wait until I finish this, then I will be free to live in peace.” What is “this”? A diploma, a job, a house, the payment of debt? If you think that way, peace will never come. There is always another “this” that will follow the present one. If you are not living in peace at this moment, you will never be able to. If you truly want to be at peace, you must be at peace right now. Otherwise, there is only “the hope of peace some day.”
