The way things are

If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the world belongs to you. ~Lao Tzu

    My happiness is not depends on money ! that's why I'm staying here and serving with lot of problems ,,, its good to say that rejoice in the way things are the world belongs to you ! Well I believe in applying and then supplying ,,,,, I can not do that , unless I have my girl in my arm next to my heart , even then I would not say 100% but 80% I can rejoice in the way things are but I still worry ,,, have problems to face ,,,, people for confrontation ,,,, at the same time I hv you it really make deference I won't deny that fact ,, but still ,,,ha ha ha you are very sweet Lua ,,,

    Jend, Their is a saying ; "Do what you can with what you have and where you are" but to have money is important and to be wise with money is even more important. Happiness is proactive, to be happy or not to be happy one has to realize that rejoice comes from our inner self. Good morning to you lady Jend, you be good and take care.

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.

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.

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
