Humanity

What makes you human? Is it intelligence? Logic? Emotions? No, my friends. Those are just big words scattered throughout our brains and have nothing to do with humanity. That elusive thing that is hidden deep inside of us, barely grasping for life. That little thing which humans successfully have learned how to keep under control and which comes out only when they plan to use it for manipulation. Yes. You read it right. “Humanity” becomes visible only when people can use it to gain something. Only when they think it is the only way to reach their cause. If this is true, then it looks like “humanity” has lost its meaning. Or maybe we are talking about something completely different?  Continue reading Humanity

Rain

I must admit that yesterday was one of those days when I didn’t had time to breathe. I was so busy that I couldn’t even open my blog and see what’s new or watch at least half an episode from my favorite TV shows (believe me, I always find time for my shows!).

In most Buddhist traditions, Siddhartha Gautama is regarded as the Supreme Buddha (Pali sammāsambuddha, Sanskrit samyaksaṃbuddha) of the present age. Gautama taught a Middle Way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the śramaṇa movement common in his region. He later taught throughout regions of eastern India such as Magadha and Kosala. Continue reading Buddha: Thoughts About Life, Happiness And Fulfillness

Happiness

I have been in several debates with different people about the meaning of the word “happiness”. It looks like a lot of people believe that happiness is momentary explosion of positive emotions which consume you completely and that our life is composed of this small moments of positive energy, mutually connected with boring, negative or simple everyday periods. But, I do not agree with this opinion. If you ask me, this definition of happiness looks more like euphoria. Of some kind of hyperactivity which is caused by positive events. That is definitely not happiness.  Continue reading Happiness
