Happiness must be based within, on the Self. All other things fade, but the Self is eternal. When flesh and blood die, when mountains crumble, when rivers dry up, when nature empties herself of life, the Self remains.
Im considering going on a detox for a few days. My mood and my face have been feeling somewhat off lately… also alot of other things have been on my mind.
It’s hard to plan for the future and be bhuddist about it as well. On one hand you want to look forward in the future and make sure everything goes as well as planned (which they never do in the long run smh -__-) but on the other hand Bhudda teaches us never to be enthralled by earthly desires. Do these desires include jobs and college degrees? Bhudda teaches us what will be will be if it is meant to be, but I NEED it to be a certain way to plan out my life. But Bhudda says never to NEED anything. I can understand that since if you need something, and you don’t get it, your disappointed. Suffering and strife sets in. Its confusing….To find the middle way is to know balance…but should i be so indifferent towards my future? I wish i was meant to spend my days in a temple meditating on my place in the universe, but things aren’t like that in america. I wish i could run away to a far off country…
