Mind at Peace
A mind is at peace! Is my mind!! My mind is sheer happiness . Who would want to let this go?? Not me! When i feel like this i am in my own heaven. I have created the grass and ground where I sit. I am not god , but I am the creator. And this is how my happiness is born. - gabrielle stevens

What the Buddha has done for me so Far:
The Buddha sends me messages, saying “HEY! I THINK THAT WAY TOO!” I can relate to the Buddha, with similar feelings! The Buddha is nothing less than enlightenment. Even after the few days being Buddhist, I am already very in love. I’m in love with living that life, he has foretold of. It’s SIMPLE, guys. It is. Love is in EVERYONE and EVERYTHING!!! Until you realize that, prepare to more heavily suffer. He said “life is suffering” or “discontentment” , “disappointment”.
I know I can be happy and calm in my soul. I must find that. And the Journey has been nothing LESS THAN REFRESHMENT!
Buddha opens my heart.

Today’s Plans & Yesterdays Accomplishments
Today me & Kara are visiting the local book store after cleaning her room. Yesterday I felt great! I changed a little bit about my day! And it was great. I felt great , and more caring about others. Since I stay at Kara’s house everyday we usually let things such as Soda’s and food pile up. & well friday nights is her parents Bible study. A lot of kids came, and out of compassion, I wanted to clean up, and without being told! I was shocked , and happy about what I changed. Usually I don’t think about those things!
I also delt with being less negative. When the kids got annoying, i brought encouragement, and helpful words for them , instead of yelling. “SHUT UP”. You know. After a bath last night, I meditated.
Another big accomplishment was my HEADACHE.
A big BIG obstacle for meditation. Man, I had NO IDEA it would be this rough.
I have also realized I have many MANY more things to work with:
DISAPPOINTMENT, ANGER, SADNESS, and selfishness
