Buddha and Jesus walk into a bar
Don’t worry. I don’t have an off-color sacrilegious joke to tell you (although I’m positive most of you would find it humorous). Instead, here are a few quotes that will give you something positive to ponder. Heads up–the quotes are spiritual in nature.
The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.
Do not underestimate good, thinking it will not affect you. Dripping water can fill a pitcher, drop by drop; one who is wise is filled with good, even if one accumulates it little by little.
Blessed are you who are the poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
Let us live most happily, possessing nothing; let us feed on joy, like the radiant gods.
Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.
May fear and dread not conquer me.
The cause of suffering is desire (or craving).
If you don’t try to hold, you don’t suffer over the loss.
If you don’t worship life, you don’t fear death.
But if you try to hold on to life, it’s very sad.
You can honor life but if you try to hold on to life……it’s very sad
An ice cream cone goes by……will it ever be The Big Ice Cream Cone In The Sky? Will it ever be an ETERNAL Ice Cream Cone? Or….is it always going to melt? You gotta keep eating it yet it melts and melts. That’s its problem. You gotta keep eating it cuz it will melt…..& it’s gone. And you know that taste in your mouth when you finish &… you want a glass of water? Right? Then you have a glass of water and there’s that bloaty feeling? Then, you’re ready for the NEXT one…to get rid of THAT one…Let’s take a walk… & you take a walk…. It’s cold out. Let’s have some hot chocolate, yes, let’s have some, & on & on & on & ……
it’s called LIFE.
You see: the opposite of craving is saying BABY, this is the way it is. Yeah. Ok. Here & Now. This is it. I ACCEPT THE HERE & NOW FULLY. As it is. Right at this moment!!Comments
