Aug 9 - 15

Summer, week 8
"In our ordinary human life, we are always trying to fulfill our desires. We're satisfied only when all our desires are met. In Buddhism, though, it's just the opposite: it is important for us to leave our desires alone, without trying to fulfill them. For breaking the ego's grip, nothing is more effective than giving something up." --Kosho Uchiyama
