Thought for the Day

“Friendliness, compassion, altruistic joy, and equanimity. These are not static traits, but skills we can develop. So are antagonism, cruelty, jealousy, and volatility. Which are we choosing to practice, moment by moment?” — TSB

I like this quote a lot.  I just happen to like the Buddhist way of thinking.  It is practical.   I don't believe in reincarnation and such but I do believe that we can teach ourselves, learn from others, how to be better people.  For our own sake and for the sake of others.

Garbage in, garbage out.  Good stuff into our brains, good stuff out of our brains.
