I had a dream last night. I was in space discovering distant galaxies, when suddenly one of the crew has organized taking over the ship and converting it into a bad cause … I woke up and thought: Why is there BAD? When there is good, must there always be bad?
Is that the way balance is made in life, or we are the creators of our own destiny?
Just think for a second .. We have truth and yet there is lie. We love but there is also hate. We live in peace, and there is war. There are ultra rich people and extra poor ones. Some build and others destroy.
There is giving birth and yet getting abortion. We get married and get divorced. We are healthy and still are getting sick. We smile and we cry. We are happy and sometimes we are sad.
We are born young and beautiful and we die old and wrinkled. After life comes death. We say yes and we say no.
We enjoy nature’s way of giving sun, wind, rain, snow, but mother nature also gives us hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunami’s. We love animals and their wild nature, cause they are meant to run free and yet we lock them in cages and the zoo.
Is the HYPOCRISY of LIFE the “creator” of BALANCE?
Dalai Lama once said: “Love is the absence of judgment.” It’s because we choose superficial over spiritual. Visual beauty over peacefulness. We choose Victoria’s Secret look over Dalai Lama’s inner peace.
Read carefully his words of wisdom: “There is only one important point you must keep in your mind and let it be your guide. No matter what people call you, you are just who you are. Keep to this truth. You must ask yourself how is it you want to live your life. We live and we die, this is the truth that we can only face alone. No one can help us, not even the Buddha. So consider carefully, what prevents you from living the way you want to live your life?”
“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend – or a meaningful day.”
“Inner peace is the key: if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquility…without this inner peace, no matter how comfortable your life is materially, you may still be worried, disturbed, or unhappy because of circumstances.”
