"It is love that brings happiness to people. It is love that gives joy to happiness. My mother didn't give birth to me, that love did. A hundred blessings and praises to that love."

-- Rumi


"From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven, and when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, the streams of light flow together and a single brighter light goes forth from that united being."

--Ba'al Shem Tov


"If you could only keep quiet, clear of memories and expectations, you would be able to discern the beautiful pattern of events. It is your restlessness that causes chaos. "

Yes, well, thank you, but Lehish and I already had a talk about what is or is not in Buddhas script.

Many things that we think are our choices are just reflections of our Buddha Nature, and many things that we think a matter of our destiny are just what comes as a result of those choices. 

If Buddha made our Buddha Nature, then how many of our choices were actually made by Buddha, and how much of the result was what Buddha had in mind?

Once we realize that our regular nature was never separate from our Buddha Nature there will be a cooperation between Buddha and I, Buddha and source, the source and enlightenment. This sets us in perfect alignment with our every thought and our every deed, which must be in harmony with the intent and purposes of the best that is within us.

I really don't know the thoughts of Buddha and what exactly he had in mind for a result. The impact I have on my destiny springs from the love, knowingness, and bliss which is the light and quality of my soul.
