1. Sometimes when it comes to Love…


    Why love is like a plant?

    Love is man’s greatest need and man’s greatest pursuit of happiness is finding that one perfect true love, his other half, so the dream of living  “happily ever after” EFFORTLESSLY would finally come true. But sometimes when it comes to love, we put more effort on the pursuing and casting of net to our targeted prey. And when finally got our catch and had our fun and the realities of life become unavoidable , we start to treat our loved one like a forgotten plant, emotionally unacknowledged and rejected by its owner and, although dying, still not getting any water because to the owner it has become emotionally irrelevant. Love is like a plant, you water it or it will die.

    Always remember to treat your love like a plant. Water your love with faithfulness and loyalty. Bring out the best  of each other but be loyal and faithful when you’re needed most. When your loved one is weak, be his/her strength. You water your love by being each other’s best friend, as much as possible share as many common interests with your loved one so you can enjoy each other together. ~Ketchie V. Schauf

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.
