After being busy for a while, the demons in me were all released since they knew I wouldn't be able to fight them given my mental and physical exhaustion. It took me two days to cleanse my inner self. I pulled myself together to say goodbye to my desires and longings. Today I am finally myself again.
Yesterday I spotted a very beautiful face in Long-shan Temple. When the followers were reciting the incantations, a man was totally lost in singing with joy written all over his face.
There are moments when I am frustrated and upset. There are times when I feel like fleeing. But I know in the end I will come back to myself and face every challenge in life. Sometimes I wonder if I am too honest and if my honesty is too much for others to bear. I don't know about others, but for me, honesty and magnanimity rule.
Others have too much happiness that I don't, but instead of letting jealousy stand in our way, I choose to open up my arms and offer my sincerest blessings....
