Beyond the control

Look around and enjoy all the beautiful
things that are around you, rather than
yearn for things that are beyond your
control and become miserable.

    Good morning Jen. Often we ignore the beauty within our environment and tend reach for things which are beyond our reach. Very true

    It's the age old habits of people to long for things that is beyond their reach and control.

    Jen thats what makes life so exciting.is the lack of control. You end up focusing on the control and order and not the beauty which is the excitement in life. Anyway that's the way I look at it. 🙂

    If we did not yearn to understand what is not known, how could progress and advances of our own self-imposed ignorance ever be accomplished?
    I would like nothing more then to live in a world where only beauty exists, but we all know this is not possible.
    Strive to reach what is beyond our knowledge, and only by doing so we climb closer to the stars.

    Beyond the control of being
    Miserably is good for love.

    When working hard to put love
    back in control and to be loved
    again is the best one can do.
    In every love their are miserables
    are there and to work think out
    Is all about love and being love.
    Thank you my lady jenny.

    I am going to sleep now Jenny
    N I love you my lady Jenny.

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

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.
