I don’t feel like writing a sappy post about my ex boyfriend. Yes it’s true, he’s been on my mind a lot lately – but I’m really just trying not to focus on it right now. It’s not good for my mental and emotional health.
I really just feel like writing about Buddhism. I don’t know what about; Buddhism just makes me so happy. Honestly, sometimes I wish I could convert the whole world to Buddhism so that they could share in the joy it brings me.
I just find Buddhism to be so logical and so inspirational. I haven’t found any of the teachings to be untrue so far. And one of the best parts about Buddhism is the fact that very little faith is required. I can see almost all of the Buddha’s teachings demonstrated in real life.
Maybe I should do some posts about the Buddha and his teachings?? At least from my perspective. I just wanna tell the whole world how great his teachings are!!
You know lately I’ve been talking about the law of attraction and trying to figure out what I want to do. Sometimes I feel like I am destined to do something involving Buddhism.
When I originally started my search for a religious “home”, Buddhism was one of the first religions I looked at – but I quickly dismissed it because it didn’t fit my personal philosophy at the time. 4 years and many religions later, a little voice inside of me told me to check Buddhism out again. It was like a little lightbulb going off in my head. “I’m not happy with any of these current religions.” “You should study Buddhism again.” “Yes of course! That makes perfect sense.”
And Buddhism is definitely something I’m passionate about. Of course if I want to involve Buddhism in my future, I need to spend some more time studying it and putting the teachings into practice.
That’s the hardest thing for me right now. In my head, I sometimes call myself an “intellectual Buddhist” because I don’t really practice meditation or anything. I want to, but I don’t. For the reason I mentioned yesterday – I’m scared.
I’m honestly scared of making my life better. I’m scared of letting go of my attachments and desires. They’re something so human, something I’ve lived with my entire life. To abandon them is terrifying, regardless of the benefits it would bring.
I kind of want to write Buddhist children’s books. Children’s books are a type of writing I have experience with. I’ve written several in my lifetime for school. I feel like there are probably a decent amount of Buddhist children’s books already out there, but that doesn’t dampen my spirits.
Part of me would also like to write adult Buddhist books, but I don’t feel knowledgable enough for that yet.
I really just wish I could do something to bring Buddhism more in the spotlight. I feel like so many people could benefit from it, whether they’re Atheist or Christian or Muslim or whatever else, Buddhism has something to offer everybody. I wish I knew how to show the world that.
I know it may sound a little crazy, but I really do believe Buddhism can save the world.
