Broken only reflects the mind, not the being.

Why do we use broken in a way that denotes a things final state of being. We say, ” I’m broken ” or ” we’ve broken up…” but the truth is what we call broken a Buddhist calls impermanence. Which is the idea that everything will change; nothing will st…

Bound to Dance

Think of bondage as a dance. The Master knows the steps so he leads and you follow. The Master guides you through each movement. Holding you at every turn. Supporting you at each moment. The hart of a master is the metronome by which he dictates the pa…

Question: As a gay Muslim, do I deserve to Die?

As a Buddhist, I would like to point out that the whole concept of “deserving” is an entitlement or a type of attachment that leads a person to believe that they inherently warrant a specific kind of treatment . And we, as Buddhists believe that all attachments need to be let go of because they lead to suffering . So when you remove this attachment as well as it’s implied moral justification, you will see that no thing , under any circumstances deserves to die! And no one , under any circumstances deserves to be killed.

The conflict between your nature and your religion does not make your life forfeit in the eyes of god, nor should it be seen as worthless simply because you choose to love differently. As a man of faith, I believe that while your soul belongs to God, your mind, body and heart belongs to the world. ( Ubuntu ) I believe that you and all beings were put on this planet for one purpose; to provide care, compassion, tenderness and love to each and every person without discrimination do to race, creed, religion, gender or sexual-orientation. And to loose your light, as a result of mans bigotry, would only make the world a darker place.

You, like all of mankind, were born to live and love in accordance with your nature and no religion on the planet has a doctorin that advocates against that.

Thoughts on Energy and Intent

The principal rule of internal energy is that everything begins with intent. Going into each interaction with an intention of humility gives a person the ” ability to respond ” (responsibility) accordingly. But according to Lao-Tzu, the 5th century phi…
