Wisdom from the Buddha

In her book Holy Envy—Finding God in the Faith of Others, Barbara Brown Taylor takes her Religion 101 class to visit a Buddhist monastery.

They listen to a Buddhist monk, dressed in an orange robe, lecture about “cultivating happiness.”

“Have we ever  noticed, he asks, how quickly our unhappiness with not being in a relationship turns into our unhappiness with our new relationship? Have we ever noticed how soon unhappiness with not having a job turns into our unhappiness with the job we finally get?”

Barbara Brown Taylor concludes, “He has made his point: our unhappiness is not dependent on circumstances, which are always changing….While we spin our wheels trying to control things beyond control, we ignore the one thing that is within our power to change—our way of seeing things.”
