I have noticed in my studies of history and philosophy that many great minds and thoughts are in line with some of Buddhism’s most fundamental teachings.
Where is happiness to be found?
The famous Roman philosopher-emperor Marcus Aurelius (121–80) said, “A man’s true delight is to do the things he was made for.” Human happiness, he maintained, lies in doing those things only humans can: seeking the truth and acting to help those who are suffering. Goethe, too, asserted that “those who work cheerfully and take joy in the fruits of their labor are truly happy.”
These are the timeless words of great thinkers, and as relevant to todays efforts as they were then.
Peace and Love, Jim
