*Enlightenment*


So coming from a glorious 4 day weekend, i had loads of time to reflect & think & play :-) I came to the conclusion that i'm on this quest of self-discovery, so bear with me while i go thru all sorts of radical changes...nah, nothing that dramatic. One great source of insight is Buddha, he has a great many quotes i find quite astute...some of them we've all heard in one way or the other, but here's a new spin on how you can see the world...and yourself.

Ambition is like love, impatient both of delays and rivals.
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.
I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.
And my favourite;
You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.

Just a few thought would share with one.
"It isn't the big pleasures that count the most; it's making a great deal out of the little ones",
"Count it the greatest sin to prefer mere existence to honour, and for the sake of life to lose the reasons for living",
and finally "There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way and not starting".

Bon jour!
