Sunday Reading – 84 Problems

“There is an old story about a man who came to see the Buddha because he had heard that the Buddha was a great teacher. Like all of us, he had some problems in his life, and he thought the Buddha might be able to help him straighten them out. He told the Buddha […]

Sunday Reading – How do you live?

To me, it’s all a matter of perception. I don’t search for happiness. Happiness is a by-product of living life well. Instead of looking at decisions as good or bad, right or wrong, I try to see it vertically. Am I making the highest choice?

Away from […]

The Truth of Impermanence – Sunday Reading

When we encounter difficulty, we often ask: “Why me? What did I do to deserve this?” We look at all of life from our own personal viewpoint, seeing ourselves as fixed features in a world fraught with all kinds of bodily harm and unexpected danger. Even as we grow older, we worry about the inevitable changes our […]
