Turning Inward

Daily Draw: Lojong for the Layperson ~ Slogan #40

"Disillusion"
It is so easy to think why bother. Why bother with community service, grassroots involvement, generous donations, paying taxes. There is so much skimming, waste of time and materials, inappropriate use as to boggle the mind.

"Self concern"
Slogan #40 asks me to turn away from how all this is all about me, to it is all about a better place, here, on earth, where we live out our days. Living them to the highest good...

But But But. All I can think is why bother. At all. I'll cocoon, I'll turn my face from the world, I'll stop, step around the vexation and distress, make it invisible.

  1. We usually never know how selfless actions pan out; we never know who might have been touched in a way that changed their day or even their life.

  2. Dis-illusion. Not of. What we see may not be.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
