3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I never forget the fact that I am emotionally fragile and have big buttons that can be pushed. Yes I have learned to mange myself, and a big part of that is creating a suitable environment, ruthlessly excluding from it the "button-pushers", but my essential nature remains. Being fully aware of this is actually a strength, keeping me in touch with reality and preventing me overreaching myself or overplaying my hand.
The fragile, temporary ephemeral nature of life causes me to savour every temporary moment, though I have noticed that this attitude of grateful for now tends to lead to a more generous portion of it. When it all does pass I will be able to proudly say that once I had awakened, I made the absolute most of it.
Though I am enjoying what I have, I agree with the Buddhist maxim that the cause of all suffering is attachment. You cannot hold on to anything in life - it will invariably escape your grasp. It's better to treat everything nice like an orgasm - don't analyze it or mourn that it won't stay, just ride it as it thunders through.

The most important holiday in China is the Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year. The Chinese traditionally believe that every person turns one year older on the New Year and, thus, that day is considered to be everyone’s birthday.
9. ZEN WISDOM
When we care for others our own strength to live increases. When we help people expand their state of life, our lives also expand. Actions to benefit others are not separate from actions to benefit oneself. Our lives and the lives of others are ultimately inseparable.
