|Sometimes I feel like everything I make is just a little mud pie.|
You can spend all the time you want trying to understand the meaning of life, the universe and your reason for being alive.
At the end of the day what matters most is how you treat other people, how you feel about yourself and the thoughts, words and actions you take and use, in your own life.
I practice Buddhism because I believe that the reality of cause and effect is reality.
You can study history, people, science and physics all you like, if you don't have those basic principles down then you won't get very far in my opinion.
I try very hard not to overcomplicate my Buddhist practice, I focus on the simple and small things.
I try very hard not to patronise or come from a condescending view point and I am always happy to admit where I am wrong or misinformed.
To some of you that seems overly simplistic, but I feel that we can become so bogged down with information that we lose sight of what is really important in our VERY short lives.
I try to focus all my energies on Love, Friendship, Gratitude, Encouragement, paying it forward as much as I can.
When I die I want to feel like I lived a life of respect.
I wont ever stop studying and growing as a person.
