precious gift

While we try to teach our children about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about.

What would Buddha do?

What would Buddha do when a loved one moves away?

As shooting stars, a blindness, as a lamp,
As magic trick, as dewdrops, or a bubble,
As a dream, a lightning flash, or cloud,
So should we view all that is conditioned.

You can't make me become what I'm not

I don't pick up the ball you throw.
I don't wag my tail wildly or jump around with joy when you return home.
I don't bark at strangers nor run after postmen.
I don't sit or bow or roll at the word of your command.
You can never ever make me act like a dog because I don't have any "dog" gene in my blood.

true happiness

True happiness is more than feeling good.
Happiness has little to do with "a positive emotional state" and everything to do with overcoming the ego, conquering selfishness and having regard for the welfare of others.
