My two cents: common sense

Seems to me that having success, rivaling the lifestyles of the rich and famous, may not lead to inner peace.

 

 

Inner peace must not be linked to iconic success, stardom, power, luxury or approval.

 

The Buddhists have always said these are impermanent, ephemeral and fleeting.

 

We sure enter this world and leave it bare ass and vulnerable.

 

Why value things we do not take with us?

 

 

So where does inner peace live?

 

 

I know that inner peace cohabitates with gratitude and giving!

 

 

It thrives in the absence of ego, where desire exists in perspective (balance) and being present dominates life.

 

 

Where do you think inner peace thrives?

    All those assessors approval money power luxury and it can not save their lives
