Sharing what we have is a beautiful way of relating to others. Our friendships are much enhanced by the quality of generosity.
Anyone who wishes to create and maintain focus and purpose in their life needs to train themselves in the following five virtues called ‘core virtues’ [saaradhamma] by the Lord Buddha:
True happiness is easier to obtain than you might think. It is much easier than owning a dream house, marrying a dream girl, or getting a dream job, etc. Where is it? Why is it that everybody of every race and religion is searching for it, but few people have ever found it?
“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.” ~Henry Ward Beecher
Most people shy away from suffering and seek after happiness. Unfortunately, the happiness that most people find gives only temporary relief from suffering because it does not reach the roots of suffering or lead to permanent happiness.
“We are not responsible for what our eyes are seeing. We are responsible for how we perceive what we are seeing.” ~Gabrielle Bernstein
