Always follow your Heart and just be yourself

 

You should not do anything you do not want to do just to fit in or to impress others. It is impossible for you to please everyone or to make everyone happy. You must be yourself and sometimes decision has to be made even if you have to face criticism. Remember, no one in this world will praise you all the time and no one in this world will criticize you all the time either.

Happiness comes and goes, so does suffering. You should do what is right for you, what makes you happy because you are the one who have to live your life. Not doing what others tell you to do, does not mean you don't love them. For example: I am a vegetarian. I don't drink or smoke either. My friends always begged me to eat meat and consume a little alcohol whenever I joined them at the cookout. Of course, I would never do what they wanted me to, no matter how much they begged me because I do what I believe is right for me.

You must build a strong roof so there is shelter that can protect you from the rain. Do not let anyone change you to be the person you do not want to be. Always follow your heart, not the voice in your head. ~Jendhamuni

    I like to think that the loudest yet most trusting/trusted of the voices inside my head is the voice of my heart, it is the voice I most recognise as belonging to me!

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.

A Handful of Leaves

A Handful of Leaves

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.

Just the way it is

1. Accept everything just the way it is.
2. Do not seek pleasure for its own sake.
3. Do not, under any circumstances, depend on a partial feeling.
4. Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world.
5. Be detached from desire your whole life long.
6. Do not regret what you have done.
7. Never be jealous.
8. Never let yourself be saddened by a separation.
9. Resentment and complaint are appropriate neither for oneself nor... read more
