Has a family member let you down in a big way? Has a friend ever let you down?
It happens everyday. Family members let other family members down. Friends let other friends down.
When the world is about forgiveness and positive cheerful energy that g-d created, why do people do the opposite of what g-d created.
so, what we do in our life takes big consideration to the one up there.
- A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.
Buddha tells us a deep moral that is very difficult to understand but I will give it a shot. To me its just the positives and negatives of what can happen when people come in contact with oneanother especially with family. You can be in harmony or you can be in war with one another.
Of course we hope that we can be in harmony and not in war, but we take life day by day and see what happens.
For Instance, the wars around the world I mean the major wars that deal with countries has brought the most havoc to this world. Then you have the little big wars between families, friends, and in business. We hope that we can make peace, but sometimes that can not happen due to the fact that you have a foolish person that can either be a family member/friend/person in authority/or even a doctor that whoever it could be declares war against you or a friend of yours or a whole group of people.
Why oh why does this have to happen?
I tell you once, I’ll tell you twice, I’ll tell you a million times over that what buddha says is right. Buddha was a smart man. Just remember, Buddha always said that “You can pick your friends, You can pick your nose, but you can never pick your friend’s nose.” just kidding buddha never said that.
Or, Buddha said once, “He who goes to sleep with itchy butt, wakes up with smelly finger.” just kidding again because buddha never said that.
Buddha really said this:
Hatred does not cease in this world by hating, but by not hating; this is an eternal truth.
- Holding onto anger is like grasping onto a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else. You are the one who gets burned.
See, people must learn to let go and let things be. Once you do that all those will be forgiven and things will be in harmony once again. If you ever felt angry or felt you deserved something that you felt is right towards you, then think to yourself first, why am I fighting for this? Will this make my life better? Or will I be hurting someone in the process that I care that doesn’t need to be hurt in the process?
Do you really know if its really worth fighting for?
Here is a passage from Psalm 139 that a friend sent me in my email a while back:
1 O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. 4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. 5 You hem me in–behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. 7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” 12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. 13 For You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 18 Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.
See, it took me a while to get this quote in my head, but everything that Psalm 139 tells me is true about me and even about anybody else. Remember that you pick your battles. If You know something is true about yourself and someone else doesn’t believe it, IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT THEY THINK. Because I know what I AM. And I know what I am capable of and I KNOW I JUST KNOW THAT MY STRENGTH LIES IN HELPING THE SICK IN NEED MY DOING MY THING IN THE MEDICAL FIELD.
A quote by Helen Keller, “Many persons have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”
Another quote by Helen Keller,
When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.
I hope that you read this posting and say to yourself, GEEZ, this guy is capable, this guy knows himself, This guy though has Asperger Syndrome, will use the positive attributes of Asperger Syndrome to an advantage which in the long run will suffice all the negative energy. You may think this guy will be a Superstar one day.
Anyway, have a goodnight,
