1. We all have the Power to change our Lives

    27

    When life gets rough and the road is long
    And it seems there is no light
    When the dreams you had somehow seem lost
    Remember to never give up the fight
    When you look in the mirror and see a stranger take a closer look inside
    Come out of the shadows and out of the darkness
    There is no need to run and hide
    Never give up on you
    Never forget who you are
    Always remember wherever you go
    You’ll find that shining star
    When you think about the life that you once had
    A memory of the way things used to be
    Remember that the things that were taken away
    Are not the things that will set you free
    Remember that you have the power within yourself
    And a will that can never be broken
    You will survive and grow stronger
    This much I know for the angels in Heaven have spoken
    Never give up on you
    Never forget who you are
    Always remember wherever you go
    You’ll find that shining star
    When you thought the path you chose
    Would lead to you to where you want to go
    Remember that sometimes the path must be changed
    In order for you to grow
    When you thought your life had no meaning
    Remember that we all have our own special gifts
    Look deep inside yourself and sometimes you’ll find
    Those things you might have missed
    Never give up on you
    Never forget who you are
    Always remember wherever you go
    You’ll find that shining star
    We all have the power to change our lives
    We’re all born with greatness inside
    Don’t let your fears hold you back from dreams
    And don’t ever feel you have to hide
    Climb that rainbow and reach for the stars
    And find your shining light
    Remember you’ll survive whatever life brings
    And your spirit will shine so bright
    Never give up on you
    Never forget who you are
    Always remember wherever you go
    You’ll find that shining star

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.
