Easier said...!

Life is so simple, its rules simpler but we have really made it so complicated and complex. I sometimes feel I am so creative in making things tough and difficult for myself. Confusion is a more comfortable state we love to be in :)

Today while reading the book "The Tibetan book of living and dying", I got inspired by this simple rule of life.

"Shantideva said:
Whatever joy there is in this world
All comes from desiring others to be happy
And whatever suffering there is in this world
All comes from desiring myself to be happy"

Well easier said then followed...!
Its very much a possibility though.

Especially agree on
"Life is so simple, its rules simpler but we have really made it so complicated and complex. I sometimes feel I am so creative in making things tough and difficult for myself. Confusion is a more comfortable state we love to be in "

Wow... wonderful saying.

When our needs are negligible/nothing, mostly we will have abundant to give to others.

Be blissful... Spread blissfulness ... Give... give... give...
