Christ and Buddhism

If you haven't already learned from my previous writings, Buddhism has become a big part of my life. I wrote in one of my previous posts, "Where Am I Now?", that Buddhism was special to me. I wanted to give some perspective on Buddhism because I think a lot of people don't understand how I … Continue reading Christ and Buddhism

A Poem: My Friends are My Thoughts

Sitting and staring and thinking and sitting, The Self alines with colors of skylight, I'm depressed sometimes because people don't know me, It's evident that I'm caught in a rusted goodbye.   In splendor, I talk and with love I reverberate, I sing to the moon but no one replies, I sit in silence and … Continue reading A Poem: My Friends are My Thoughts

With everything that's changed in my life and in my … Continue reading What’s Next for Me?

A Poem: To The Bottom of The Ocean

Life is short, and suffering is inevitable. Life is suffering and suffering is short. For so long I've held suffering in the palm of my hand, and for that I now understand. Life is short and but a small vapor. With a gust of wind it comes and goes. Vapor makes its way back to … Continue reading A Poem: To The Bottom of The Ocean

Where Am I Now?
