But It’s Me

Seriously this is more of a reality check for myself than something I am shedding light on as food for thought. It's been like a weekly shot to my ego, and something I have been working on but the Universe has continued to throw out signs I might need to focus my intention more on... Continue Reading →

Fresh Fruit

Ever since I was child I wanted to be a writer. It was an odd choice for me because I never enjoyed reading and received average marks in all of my English classes up until high school. I recall in middle school having an idea for a novel that was a play off The Neverending... Continue Reading →

Their joy Can’t hurt you

This is an interesting topic and one I have been struggling with for a little bit. It finally came to a head when I was looking for Memes and pictures to add to a post; searching for Buddhist quotes to underscore my point.During my search I came across a website (click here) that was debunking...

Destiny Interference

It surprises many when I talk about having a destiny and finally realizing what it is. I've had so many tough times, losing everything and on the verge of suicide, that to believe in destiny with my track record seems like lunacy; but I do.

I felt I could practice a little on each one, as I saw them being very much intertwined, lending itself to each other principle. I still feel that... Continue Reading →

The Losing it of Loss

I try to keep most of my post positive and inspirational, as I do with most things in my life. I understand the hard times are there to teach, and allow for a deeper appreciation for the frailty of life, bringing attention to the need to make each moment in this consciousness dynamic and helpful....

I already said that

I have not come into contact with anyone who is free of ego. While one of the goals of ¬†Buddhism is to understand there is no self, or a being apart from all other beings; I haven't fully gotten to that moment yet. The intellectual side of my mind understands most of the concepts of... Continue Reading →
