Perspective

Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.

Happiness

A man said to the Buddha, "I want Happiness."
Buddha said, first remove "I", that's ego,
then remove "want", that's desire.
See now you are left with only Happiness.
What a simple story, to say anything about it would be ruining the masterpiece. Hence I will move on to how things have been with me. Although I can't say too much since it feels like a constant flow of days, an uninterrupted life. Which is nice since there has been so little "I" in that equation, there is just life as it is. Hope to keep it.

Just Stop.

Usually I advocate action, it is what keeps us moving forward. Action is what brings about change. Yet unnecessary action may just be another form of fulfillment, just another way to run. Whatever you are running from, say it be the past, the future, or yourself, take a moment and just stop. Feel that habitual reaction rise up, become comfortable being uncomfortable, take a moment and after letting it wash over you, you may then act. So just stop. Feel. Don't run, running from yourself doesn't work since you're always right there to catch up. Face yourself, don't fight, befriend the fear.
