A loved one…

A loved one is the person who understands your happiness and the person who can guess your sadness before your eyes feel.

Love is expressed as an action and experienced as a feeling. Yet,
love has an essence that resists defining in any single way — it
encompasses compassion, determination, tolerance, endurance, support,
faith, and much more.

A life partner or a lover can help
you cope with the problems in your life and will work with you to solve
them, but no one is going to make those problems just go away but you.
You have to rescue yourself. Be your own knight-in-shining-armor.
Expecting someone else to do that for you will only result in putting
way too much pressure on them and disappointing yourself in the long
run.

Don’t force love and don’t try to speed it up. This
will only create false feelings which drain you emotionally and leave
you feeling empty and unsatisfied. You can’t rush love. But believe that
it will come because it most certainly will. You just have to find the
right person.

Don’t put on an act with people you’re interested in, or with friends that you’re building a relationship with. If you’re pretending to be one way, it’s not fair to the person who meets you halfway. Be yourself all the time, and you’ll be confident that the people you meet are worthy of loving you, because it’ll be the real you. Source: wikiHow

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
