thought for today

contentment is born of the capacity

to love impartially
to listen uncritically
to give unconditionally
to forgive unreservedly
to laugh at oneself unaffectedly.

I definitely agree with you Doorman.

Ven. Wuling: talk about wow, I never expected the author of some of my posts to visit here. It is an honor to post your wisdom and to have you drop by.
