We Change Our World

A person who loves you

More love

More love

The more love you give, the happier you become. The more you think about others, the happier you become. Try it for yourself. –BJ

Karma and Emotions

Buddhism and self-pity

Buddhism and self-pity

If you’re a Buddhist, you’ll really get this. If you’re not, then just substitute ‘guru’, ‘teacher’ and ‘dharma’ with ‘spirit’ or ‘truth’ or whatever works for you. Bottom line, some good reasons why self-pity is useless. –BJ
