A Western Buddhist's Travels

Sightseeing & detours on the path of enlightenment


Diana says it so perfectly, that I’ll just reblog her post.

“To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.” Woody Allen


Whatever you doUnconditional-Love

Whatever you say

Wherever you go


Before you do it

Before you say it

Before you go there


If you are motivated by anger

Don’t do it

If you are motivated by fear

Don’t say it

If you are motivated by distress

Don’t go there


Will you get hurt?


Will you be betrayed?


Will you be mocked and belittled?


So should you love anyway?
