A few thoughts…

October 9, 2005

I was leafing through my book of Buddhist scriptures and found a quote I really admired:

“As rain breaks through an ill-thatched house, passion will break through an unreflecting mind.”

This inspired me to write a few observations I’ve been formulating in my head lately:

  1. We fear what we do not understand
  2. Our longevity is arbitrary due to death’s innate inevitability.
  3. Purpose is synthetic; however, this does not invalidate our need to pursue it.
  4. Truth is general belief.
  5. Deceit is the sin from which all sins stem.
