According to Buddha

Someone who begins to develop an interest in the teachings can tend to distance themselves from the reality of material things, as if the teachings were something completely apart from daily life. Often, at the bottom of all this, there is an attitude of giving up and running away from one’s own problems, with the illusion that one will be able to find something that will miraculously help one to transcend all that. But the teachings are based on the principle of our actual human condition. We have a physical body with all its various limits: each day we have to eat, work, rest, and so on. This is our reality, and we can’t ignore it.

According to Buddha

One hundred times a day,
I recall the spiritual support;
my congenial friend comes to mind.
The sketch of past lives becomes clearer;
mind yearning, my fondness increases.
“Separation” is the heart being ripped out.
Ah! It is like that. But there is no need to be sad.
Hold in your heart the oath of the mother dakinis.
May the sublime three jewels and guardians bless the congenial
friend so that our wishes may be fulfilled.

Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, for I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.

According to Buddha

physical beauty
that comes from keeping up appearances
can only be maintained temporarily,
but beauty that takes
authenticity and sincerity as its foundation
is timeless and eternal.
