    The Practice Of Generosity – Can You Help ?

    Complex Human

    This is so true. How many of us have forgotten that the essence of life is to live in the present and not to worry too much about the past and the future? I mean, it is ok to think about the future and look back to your past. Our future and past guide us. But if we cling on them...

    Pain In Life

    An aging Zen master grew tired of his student complaining, and so, one morning, sent him for some salt. When the apprentice returned, the master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it. "How does it taste?" the master...

    My Reply To The Dalai Lama On The Subject Of Money As The Source Of Happiness

    Recently the Dalai Lama said the following with over 3,704,404 "like" this since he shared this since, May 28 at 11:38pm to present day. What he said is, "We are, you might say, “brainwashed” into thinking that money is the source of happiness, while what we really need to...

    A Man I Admire

    The Art Of Happiness
