  • Re: Mind Chasing Desires

    I just realized I let my mind chase one desire after the next like a Chihuahua on crack.

    Time to start letting desires go.

    Alan Watts on desire

    "Don't desire to give up more desire than you can and if you find that a problem, don't desire to be successful in giving up more desire than you can !"

    ...and for this reason Buddhism is seen as the "Middle Way" :)

    Practicing alone

    @eggsavior

    If you look at the menu on the left under "Categories" ...you will find "Your Practice" when members can post about/discuss their experiences....

  • Re: Solipsism and existentialism

    It also makes me anxious and worried about the wellbeing of future people.

    S/he who fears s/he shall suffer...already suffers what s/he fears

    ~Michel de Montaigne~

    The past shapes the present and the present shapes the future

    @eggsavior it would seem that you are allowing yourself to get ahead of yourself.... :)

    Let the breath be your anchor/present :)

    To worry is to pay interest on trouble that may never come
    My advice ...Don't bank on it ...

    Then, when you are practicing, have faith that you are being blessed with the body, speech, and mind of a Buddha.

    One should never stop practising ....
