I suffer, I practice, I have determination. very much of the same qualities and difficulties that the Buddha had. in fact, probably all of the same ones. after all, Buddha was just a human being like the rest of us, but one day, the light came on for him. enlightenment. he saw, understood, and accepted all things just as they are...voilà!
for some, this may sound like a lofty goal. perhaps even unrealistic, but I have come far enough along the path that I can taste the reality of this. even if it’s only in brief moments and tiny glimpses, I see the contentment and universal love that exists in this life.
