I don't know what's better... the fact it's monkey mind's birthday, or that awesome picture of the monkey and the cake!
Have a chipper one MM... may it be as fun as the one that monkey had!
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

That is an actual photo from my birthday event. Usually I keep my hair a little more shaved, but let it all go yesterday.
I watched this movie "Cloud Atlas". It is supposed to be about karma and rebirth. There were some scenes that were truly entertaining, but I'm undecided about whether they captured the essence of karma. There is one line in the film, "Our crimes and our acts of kindness define our future."
Thank you for the well-wishing.
"As I am, so are others;
as others are, so am I."
Having thus identified self and others,
harm no one nor have them harmed.
