A theory?

Postby xtracorrupt » Sun Oct 28, 2012 2:11 pm

yesterday i realized nothing else matters but being happy and making sure other people are happy and healthy

I think I'm gonna start building my decisions/life around this theory, cause even if i can't be happy then i can at least make other people be happy :) cause there happiness has equal value

Hi,


If you are good to yourself,
you are good to others.
If you are good to others,
you are good to yourself.

Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta
