Quote of the Day – Heart of a Buddha

“If we fail to look after others when they need help, who will look after us? Indifference brings indifference; loving kindness brings loving kindness. Heart of a Buddha.”

My thoughts go to the Japanese people and the difficulties and suffering they are now facing. From living a nice life to living a life where there is life threatening radioactivity in the air, and where everything around you is destroyed from a very big earthquake and a tsunami. A life where food supplies are running out and you are just stuck somewhere.

My thoughts go to all these people who may have lost their beloved ones in such a big calamity and who now, under great pressure, have to deal with so many challenges.

Life is fragile, we think we are protected but the only thing that in fact is protecting us is how unselfish we can be as a human being; how compassionate our heart can be, since all good deeds will be rewarded and so will the bad deeds. That’s how karma works. Still we can help those who suffer since this is an act out of compassion.

I’ve read stories about people, who when they have met difficulties they have turned to each other and started helping each other unselfishly, instead of looking for their own benefits. This is a heart of a Buddha manifested, the heart of an enlighten being. That is our true innate nature. I wish we all, myself included, could have this heart all the time…

  1. How true are your words and sentiment. My thoughts also go to the Japanese people and the difficulties and suffering they are now facing.

    • Thanks AlexE. Yes, it must be very difficult for them now…

      Noticed that you’ve sent me a message, but nothing was written in it…

      I just took away that opportunity since people had found out a way to spam it. It’s a pitty, but that’s how it is… Why do people think that it could be a benefit for them to do things like that?

      I’ve looked at you blog, it seems to be a nice one 🙂

      • I like your blog too and subscribed!
        Have an inspirational day! 🙂

  2. Nice 🙂 Thanks, and wish you the same!
