For centuries the world has searched to find the true meaning of peace but left out the most important ingredient. Is to search the “SELF,” peace begins with us when we give up expectations. My motor, ACCEPT EVERYTHING AND EXPECT NOTHING AND YOU WOULD NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Life knocks us down, it’s not what happened to us is what we learned from the experience is what makes us strong to fight another day.

Over the years I have taken a deep interest in Buddhism, Buddha teachings are deep and inspirational.

HERE ARE BUDDHA’S FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS

Beautifully Written: BUDDHA and Suffering

The Buddha taught that the fundamental cause of all suffering is ignorance. The basic ignorance is our failure to understand that the self, which is at the center of all of our lives, which determines the way in which we see the world, which directs our actions for our own ease and benefit, is an illusion. The illusion of the self is the cause of all our suffering. We want to protect our self from the dangers of the constant flux of life. We want to exempt our self from change when nothing in the world is exempt from change.

Life centered on self naturally tends toward the selfish. Selfishness poisons us with desire and greed. When they are not fulfilled, we tend to become angry and hateful. These basic emotional conditions cover the luminous depths of our minds and cut us off from our own intuitive wisdom and compassion; our thoughts and actions then emanate from deluded and superficial views.
