  • ❣️What is the difference between being attached to other people and loving them?❣️ 📿With attachment, we overestimate other people’s qualities, thinking that they are better than they actually are. Also, we care about them because they please us: they give us presents, praise us, help and encourage us, etc. What we ordinarily call love is usually just attachment. 📿With attachment, we do not see people for who they are and thereby develop many expectations of them: they should be like this, they should do that, etc. Then, when they do not live up to what we thought they were or should be, we are hurt, disillusioned, and blame them.
With genuine love, we care for other people and want them to be happy not because they please our ego and desires, but just because they exist. Real love does not expect anything from others in return. We accept people for who they are and still try to help them, but we are not concerned at all with how we will benefit from the relationship. 📿Real love is not jealous and possessive. Rather, it is impartial and is shared with all beings.

  • We should face pain. Be responsible. With pain, you see the impermanent of body and mind, the truth of six realms. Pain let you be kind to others as you have empathy.

  • Adversity can test your capability, favourable circumstances can’t. Your real emotion will appear during adversity. You can also look at your weakness. Be mindfulness.

  • For #PeaceDay I would like to introduce you to Avalokitesvara. Avalokitesvara is a bodhisattva, or enlightened being, who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. Avalokitesvara is depicted throughout East and Southeast Asia as either male or female, and is one of the most widely revered bodhisattvas in Buddhism.

One story states that Avalokitesvara vowed never to rest until all the people of the world had found nirvana. After struggling to save so many, his/her head split into eleven pieces. Buddha, seeing his/her plight, gave him/her eleven heads with which to hear the cries of the suffering. Upon hearing these cries, Avalokitesvara attempted to reach out to all those who needed help, but found that his/her two arms were not enough. Once more, Buddha came to his/her aid and gave him/her a thousand arms with which to aid the suffering.

This painting by Pema Thendue was commissioned by Captain John Baptist Lucius Noel (1890-1989) in Tibet in 1924.  Noel was a mountaineer and filmmaker who is best known for his participation in the 1924 Mount Everest expedition.

If anything I state is unbiblical, do not hesitate to correct me, thank you and God bless!
🔥A checklist I want you to remind the little ones to pray for.🔥
☑ For all the children over all the earth to be saved, for their families to be saved and ☑for the redemption of Hollywood and the Media.
The reason why the children should pray? ☄️“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in Heaven.”MATT.18:10☄️
May they also pray that God protects them, their purity, and their innocence.
I know many people are angry at God, and so have your children  pray that all these little ones might get saved from the fire and that all children get the Holy Spirit (and any other prayer you want to remind them of) in Jesus Christ’s Name amen.
I’m sure if you’re Christian I do not have to remind you not to allow your Children to celebrate halloween. ⚔️ALSO⚔️
do not sugarcoat Christ, meaning, have your children fear God and raise them up in the fear of the Lord by reading Isaiah 63 and teach them Proverbs 19:23.  Please, stop telling Kids their Creator is a cartoon. He is not and He is to be feared. Amen,
tell your children that the spiritual realm is real and STOP SUGAR COATING THE TRUTH TO THEM, it shows a lack of trust toward God.
