the Disastrous Behaviour of the Memory

Our mind creates the world we live in

Does our memory play tricks on us,
creating demons or divinities out of people?

How Our Memory Deceives Us

¸.• *
We are shaped by our thoughts;
we become what we think.”

Buddha

When we are thinking hateful things, lacerating ourselves with the bad things we ‘remember‘ people saying to us; we’re creating a most uncomfortable environment for ourselves (and those who come near us).

Alternatively, when our mind is pure, focussing on the good stuff instead,

joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.

Buddha

So what do we choose?… 

+ = ˚͜˚

The only way to attain the permanent peace of liberation, is to cultivate and increase our present peaceful minds.
