Truth. . .

Success is not a matter of accumulating more of this or that; it is not measured in quantity. It means changing the quality of your life. Wealth, power, fame and knowledge alone cannot make you happy, no matter how much of these you acquire. Nor can you take them with you when you die. But by improving the quality of your life you will at last approach true happiness.

Greater Understanding. . .

Greater Understanding. . .

The important thing is to keep working for understanding (of self) to the very end. On any journey, we cannot hope to reach our destination if we stop halfway. Likewise, if despite our good fortune in meeting and embarking on the unsurpassed way of compassion, we stop halfway, all the efforts we have made thus far will have been in vain; we will not be able to attain our goals or help others reach theirs, both of which are critical to greater understanding for all. Peace and Love, Jim The Daily Buddha – Support The Server The Daily...

Flashes of Life. . .

Life flashes by in an instant. By devoting our lives to each moment, we will live a life of complete fulfillment. We are selling ourselves short if we fail to attain understanding and appreciation of our small wonderful moments of life.

Advance. . .

Advance. . .

Advancement – Buddhism teaches the spirit that “not to advance is to retreat.” This does not mean to advance with reckless abandon. The point is to continue forging ahead carefully by looking at ones steps forward despite any storms or hardships that may arise, to be fearless and advance like a lion with determination and strength quietly through our thickets.

Signs Of Compassion. . .

Signs Of Compassion. . .

Wisdom, not might, is the most important thing. Wisdom and compassion are deeply connected. Giving earnest thought to others’ welfare, asking ourselves what can we do to help—using our minds in this way is a sign of compassion.

Embracing Stillness. . .

Embracing Stillness. . .

Stillness is something we are almost taught to avoid, yet it is the higher state of a developed mind. Going into the silence is like taking a bath in pure, white light – it clears you, calms you and quiets you; and it helps you manage the stress of normal everyday life. It’s in the silence that we have our greatest opportunity to access the power of grace. The idea of spending time in silence and stillness runs contrary to the messages we receive from the world around us. Instead, we’re rewarded for our ability to multitask, and to be...

Something Wonderful. . .

There is a saying, “Stop and smell the roses.” It doesn’t mean to simply smell flowers, it means to live in the moment with a great appreciation for the present and the things around you. So let me ask you… Do you ever stop to smell the roses? It’s very easy to get completely caught up in planning for the future, that we often forget to take the time to appreciate the wonderful things happening in our daily lives. I’d like to offer 3 things you can do today to live in the present and start appreciating the moment. Become Very...

Fresh Air. . .

To appreciate simplicity in life one must escape the mind’s desire to complicate. I feel that we are almost wired to always want what we don’t have.  We’re always dreaming about the things we want to accomplish, or owning the next best thing. Be a dreamer, dream big, aspire big, love big…. but don’t lose sight of today and what you hold in your arms in that moment in time. Whether your dream is to make more money, have that dream career or your dream partner in life… you cannot attain those things by constantly sitting back and worrying...

Commit to Mastery. . .

Do you feel like something is holding you back from moving forward in life, but you don’t know what it is? You are not alone. Everyone gets stuck in a rut at some point in their lives. Even the most successful people in the world feel unmotivated and confused, from time to time. There are times in life when the thing that we want most may seem so out of our reach, that no matter what we do, we just can’t seem to grasp it. Expecting Things To Come Easy – Goals don’t exist to be easy. Anything of value requires hard...

In The Know. . .

In The Know. . .

The sperm that fertilized that egg was in constant motion. The heart that allows you to live is in constant motion. The mind that directs you to think is in constant motion. The body you use to walk on this earth is in constant motion. The earth you are walking on every day of your life is in constant motion. The galaxy where our earth is located is in constant motion. The universe that holds milllions of galaxies like ours is in constant motion. So stillness, does it truly exist? Can it be found? The living human body is in motion...
