You made a conscious choice to be living at this time on Earth. Yes, you did.
Unless it is eternal it is not the Truth
But a passing thought,
Unless it’s beautiful it is not the Truth
But an emotion formed in fear and ignorance,
Unless it lives, inspires and gives life
It is not the Truth but a falsehood and a dream,
There is an ancient Zen parable that tells of a young monk-in-training who searches the world for a true master and a peaceful place. Yet, he finds only angry, unhappy people everywhere he goes.
