Happiness– which is total and complete satisfaction with yourself. This means you realize that nothing and nobody else can make you happy. Happiness is something you get from yourself. If you’re completely satisfied with yourself, nobody can take it away from you. ##the RZA
Too lazy to be ambitious, I let the world take care of itself. Ten days’ worth of rice in my bag; a bundle of twigs by the fireplace. Why chatter about delusion and enlightenment? Listening to the night rain on my roof, I sit comfortably, with both legs stretched out! -Ryokan
What if the whole world just held hands? United as one Those who opposed, fell off Disintegrated into the sun The only thing left of evil was ash The only thing left on earth was people with passion Heart for Mother Nature Caring for their fellow human being Common considerate behavior Contribution towards humane higher plane of consciousness
A man saw a snake being burnngg to death and decided to take out of the fire. When he did, the snake bit him causing excruciating pain. The man dropped the snake, and the reptile fell right back into the fire.
So, the man grabbed a metal pole, took the snake out of the fire and saved his life.
Someone who was watching, approached the man and said,
“That snake bit you. Why are you still trying to save it?”
The man replied, “The nature of the snake is to bite, but that is not gonna change my nature…which is to help!”
Do not change your nature simply because someone harms you. Do not lose your good heart…only learn to take precautions.
