Thought For The Day

Recommended Posts

I have a little spiritual book which I found in India. It is kind of between Buddhism and Hinduism. I chose one at random every day.

I'd like to share todays one with you.

"If I am always comparing myself with other human beings, I will SUFFER from ego or jealousy"

What was the future happens now, what happens now becomes the past - so why worry.

There is a Thai saying I like- "arai ja gerd gaw hai man gerd" what happens is meant to happen.

Does no one else have any thoughts?

Sounds like typical Thai fatalism to me. If we were to paraphrase Buddhist teachings it would come out something like: Whatever is in the past is past, so don't waste time worrying about it. What you do in the present directly affects your future, so make sure you are doing the right thing now!

Better Buddha Sakayamuni:

"If you want to understand the causes that existed in the past, look at the results as they are manifested in the present. And if you want to understand what results will be manifested in the future, look at the causes that exist in the present."

Or to put it another way: If we want to understand our present, look at the causes that we created in the past; and if we want to know the effects in the future, then look at the causes that we are creating now.

If I make others believe I am something that I am not, who is being fooled?

Sorry JD, I forgot today. Was a pretty full on weekend.

A mouse found a grain of salt and found himself to be a grocer.

What causes the most pain - the mistake or the criticism of the mistake?

Any more Neeranam? I love it.

I am glad you like them. I thought that maybe noone was reading with the lack of responds and thoughts.

Anyone else got any thoughts or sayings that are good to remember throughout the day?

To truly see, do not look. To truly hear, do not listen. To truly find, do not seek.
