Interests If one is to live, one must first learn to love. If one is to love, one must first learn to listen. If one is to listen, one must first learn to be quiet. If one is to be quiet, one must first learn to be still. It is from stillness that all things come to be. It is to stillness that all things return. If a person is to be happy in this life, they must be able to be content now, in each and every moment. I am aware that my life is not where I want it to be. It is my attachment to this ideal life that is making me unhappy. If I can achieve happiness in each moment, then what power can sadness, frustration, and fear have over me? If I can calm my thoughts and actions and bring them from yesterday and from tomorrow into this moment, I can learn to live the fullest life. There will always be good times and bad times. The key is not to let the bad times carry on until you have missed the good times. And vice versa. If you allow the good times to carry over into the bad, you spend so much time regretting the past and hoping for the future, that you lose sight of your true problems, and cannot fix them. Sleep is a curious thing. It is the resting point between consciousness and unconsciousness. Not yet dead, yet not truly alive. It is curious that for Buddhists, most people are sleeping through their daily lives. Attaining Buddahood, is the process of awakening. Not being awakened, but AwakenING. How often are we truly awake for every decision that we make? How often do we want to be? Do you ever drive all the way home, and wonder how you got there? Time is the only thing that we can NEVER get back. Spend it wisely. Don't associate with people that like to waste it. Cherish the ones that you love while you still can. Hold on to your memories, learn from your mistakes, but do not allow them to control your present. Wander aimlessly through this life, it was given to you as a gift. It is not yours to control or manipulate. Take it as it comes, and enjoy the ride.
