Lasting Happiness

A   L   O   H   A  !
I want to live my life in such a way that
when I get out of bed in the morning, 
the devil says,  "aw shit, he's up!”
Steve Maraboli

You can walk in a dream while you are awake: 
Just walk in the misty morning of a forest!
    Mehmet Murat ildan

- as soon as I wake up, I remember Buddha’s teaching: the importance of kindness and compassion, wishing something good for others, or at least to reduce their suffering. Then I remember that everything is interrelated, the teaching of interdependence. So then I set my intention for the day: that this day should be meaningful. Meaningful means, if possible, serve and help others. If not possible, then at least not to harm others. That’s a meaningful day.

Lasting Happiness, I think,
is like wonderful donuts:
Made Fresh Every Hour!
