I'd like to share todays one with you.

Bump! C'mon Neeranam... where's todays TFTD?

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?

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.

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?
