In the struggles of becoming an author, there are many good times and bad. Times when you feel you can’t go on and the ones you just want to quit and never look back. Not something to be pride of but it does happen to all of us eventually.
In these past years I created this blog originally for the purpose of informing my family what I was doing and so they could check up on me every now and then. But last summer I changed it up deleted all the old personal posts and reinvented this old blog into a new one. After the reinvention I wanted this blog to be especially for book reviews/opinions but I haven’t really had the time to even finish one book (very sad story, but unfortunately true). So the last posts have been of random things that interest me or inspire me.
So speaking of things that inspire me… You all might have seen my latest Non-Profit organization posts. Those posts are my passion, I would like you all to read them and think how good your lives are and see how many people don’t even have water to drink. (clean water) In this capitalist and selfish world we live in, people only care about how much money they have and how much they spend on clothes. We all forget that there are other people on earth that don’t have it so easy in life, people that sleep hungry and don’t have a place to call home. If even billionaire donated some money every month to charity or helped a family that needs it, we would already be living in a better world. But we are a cruel species and the more we have the more we want, we should all turn into Buddhists. Buddha a man that taught people how to be happy without all the things we something’s think that bring us happiness. Having these things won’t bring you happiness, he was a smart man. You see in poorer countries that follow Buddha’s beliefs don’t fight, there are also no wars that were caused by Buddhist’s because being a Buddhist means being open to other religions. Buddha never said someone should become a Buddhist he only said they should try it out he never forced anyone into believing him.
Buddhism teaches that the solutions to our problems are within ourselves not outside.
Remember if you want to follow Buddha there are three rules to follow…
(1) to lead a moral life,
(2) to be mindful and aware of thoughts and actions, and
(3) to develop wisdom and understanding
