Give Me Strife and Suffering (but in manageable doses)

"Life is suffering," said Buddha. His plan? Release your attachments to this world and end your suffering.

I'm not with Buddha on this one. Give me strife and suffering. And once I have grown stronger, tempered, hardened by the strife, give me MORE.

Life is strife, suffering, struggle. Your body and mind are kept alive by a series of violent chemical reactions, your heartbeat, the acid in your stomach, the cells constantly breaking apart and dying as new ones are created, the battle towards homeostatis with different bacteria and cells combating each other, all inside your body.

Your mind - your thoughts - may come into conflict, especially when you're trying to do meaningful things. It's easy to feel the pull of distraction and ease, and to choke up and pause in fear when you look at the mountain you're set to climb. The mind is not in harmony, especially at the beginning. Struggle, strife, conflict, suffering.

I say - give it to me! But not so fast that it will break me. I must be pragmatic. We must be pragmatic. We have our limits. We can expand them over time. It's not brave to go into the gym for the first time and try to lift 400 pounds. It's foolhardy, unrealistic, stupid. Being pragmatic, aware of our limits takes its own sort of courage.

Hour Three - Tree huger Short story.

On Hour One

Hour 3

In order to write todays post i thought it would be best to go back into my archives and pull out an old story I had started or an idea that was under developed.

However this trip down memory lane was fraught with teen angst and horrible spelling. In fact so many of these under developed ideas were so bad that it made me have to stop reading.

I would like to go over the basic structure of my ideas from 10 - 13 years ago. All most all of my ideas were about a young boy with a great hidden skill or talent. He Is faced with a great tragedy or a Seemly impossible challenge. he then dose something thing funny , silly or sings and that saves the Day.

That was like 80% of my stories but i did have some stuff that i have written so i wanted to share this little ditty a story called Tree Huger.
