Reflection from September 24th, 2007 @ Age 27


It’s funny because in Buddhism, and in many other religions as well, a true Buddha is to give up the prospects of marriage and having children of his/her own, and when I first came to this principle I thought I would never be willing to give those things up.  But as I grow older and supposedly smarter and wiser, it seems my own life is naturally coming into accord with these principles.  I can’t say that I have given up on them entirely, but I just do not see how marriage and having my own family will fit into my current priorities.  If anything, it seems, it will take away from all that I have to give to the greater good.
