After December 17…

2012…I am taking a break from posting.

There are many projects in life this month and for the early months of 2013. And there is only one of me to complete them. 🙂

So my dear readers…I leave you (for the moment) with this prayer, for the balance of 2012 and all of 2013…

May all sentient beings have happiness and its causes

May all sentient beings be free of suffering and its causes

May all sentient beings not be separated from sorrowless bliss

May all sentient beings abide in equanimity, free of bias, attachment and anger

Buddha’s Blessings,

Debra

 

Why be unhappy?

Whether we are suffering at present or have suffered in the past, there is no reason to be unhappy. If we can remedy it, then why be unhappy? And if we cannot, there’s no use in being unhappy about it—it’s just one more thing to be unhappy about, which serves no purpose at all. ~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama, “Enduring the Fires”
