  1. Lovely sentiment, and one with which I have always agreed with. However, as I have always been self-employed, my dear wife has always accused me of ‘giving it away’.

    What I like about Buddhism is the very common sense belief that everything is transient. Seasons and years change, empires and buildings rise and fall…nothing lasts forever….in that, I take comfort…pain passes and so does joy…peace and freedom from wanting satisfies a soul forever.
