It's my birthday and I'm wondering how a Buddhist might approach the Gandhian satyagraha campaign.
I've realized suffering is self-inflicting. No one is responsible for your feelings, only you. You feel the way you do because you allow and accept it. Thus, we must change ourselves to avoid suffering, not expecting others to change. When we find peace and joy in the worst of circumstances, amongst the worst company, is when we have reached nirvana.
Good Quote: "
People have been asking me all day if I "feel older?" I respond "I don't feel any older. Just tired. One year older, one year closer to death." I've been listening to African chants and Bright Eyes all day. The perfect Emo combo. I'm choosing to be sad. Why? Maybe being sad's "in" right now - Emo fashionable. Emo fabulous.
What's your perfect Emo combo?
