1. Good Night World


    Day is dying in the west,
    time has gone we love the best
    Now no more is left to say, but,
    thank you for a lovely day
    What delights we had, to make us glad
    You made me laugh, you touched my heart
    While angels keep, our dreams so sweet
    All will be well ’til next we meet

    ~Soft Whispers from Derry’s Heart Poems

  2. It’s Not Too Late


    It’s not too late… the angel said.
    Even though the world’s a mess…
    Even though you’re not as young…
    Even though you’ve made mistakes and have been afraid
    It’s not too late…
    And then I saw the world through the angels’ eyes…
    I saw the colors I could paint
    The bridges I could build
    The lives that I could touch
    The dreams that could still come true
    And it became very clear to me…
    That it’s not too late.

    ~Written by Ron Atchison


  3. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness


    Those who have hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on the pain in through resentment… Your past is past! Nothing will change it. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go. ~Mam Julie

  4. God never leaves you alone


    You can be broken. You can get upset.
    But you must always remember
    that God never leaves you alone.

    ~Ritu Ghatourey


  5. Love can hurt and Love can heal


    What is love, Love can’t see you but you can’t see it
    Love is a sneaky thing I guess sort of slick

    Love can hurt and Love can heal
    Love can be born and Love can kill

    Love has won and Love has lost
    Love can catch and Love can toss

    Love can stand and Love can fall
    Love is small and Love is tall

    Love is right and Love is wrong
    Love is weak but Love is strong

    Love is up and Love is down
    Love can smile and Love can frown

    Love is good and Love can be bad
    Love is quite and Love can brag

    Love is a little and Love is a lot
    Love contiues and Love stops

    Love can hope and Love can dream
    Love can talk and Love can sing

    Love can be a word or Love can be a ring
    Love can be nothing or Love can be everything

    So where is this thing we call Love
    I dont know the only real love we have comes from above…

    Poem title: LOVE IS
    ~Daniel Chapman

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.
