REFLECTIONS ON BUDDHISM




    Greetings all, it's been a while. I have been quite busy with my own life pursuits and spiritual studies. But during that time, I have come to realize something. And that is, that Buddhism is one of the only spiritual paths in the world that truly gives us the tools to be responsible for ourselves. It shows us how to achieve peace of mind, health in our bodies and the ability to stay present in our daily life. It helps us to release the troubling past and to conquer our fears. And it makes us look within ourselves for the answers and not to always be dependent upon some outside, mystical agencies. It does not, in any way, take away our belief in God; it merely enables us to use the logic, wisdom and common sense that he gave us. It is a path of personal empowerment, peace and poise. Helping ourselves, being responsible for ourselves; they are things that so many of us do not do. We are always looking for someone or something else to aid us or make us feel fulfilled... but that is a path that leads us deeper into the empty void. We need to change that mindset, Buddhism can help us do just that.
