Murmuring…

Sometimes, when we chat with people especially elderly people,

they might murmur about their past,

kept  complain that how nice they treat their children but their children not respect or treat them well,

how great they treat their friend but being betrayed,

how much contribution of them but no return .…..

They might hold on to too much grudges in life,

They are unable to let go the past,

Keep talking, keep complaining about the past, what are the consequences?

They will be more angry, more upset, more depress, full of negative emotion, How can they be live happily when they holding too much grudges?

They are not willing to let go and live at now!

Enjoy the coffee, instead of keep asking about the coffee bean… Enjoy your life. instead of keep talking about the past!

Enjoy the coffee, instead of keep asking about the coffee bean… Enjoy your life now. instead of keep talking about the past!

Enjoy the sandwiches, instead of keep asking where is the wheat flour! Live at now, not hold on to grudges, let go your past! Liberate yourself. Nothing you can change for the past but Now is in your hand!

Enjoy the sandwiches, instead of keep asking where is the wheat flour! Live at now, not hold on to grudges, let go your past! Liberate yourself. Nothing you can change for the past but Now is in your hand! Treasure it before it become “past”.

Time is always moving. The important thing is to learn from the past and then look forward to the future.

  1. Our time on earth is precious! I have had the opportunity to talk with elderly people who at first appear very negative, murmuring all of the negatives about current day life. When asked a genuine question about what it was like when they were in their 20’s it sometimes sparks a completely different, positive conversation from the individual! The elderly truly have positive wisdom to share! Hopefully we can encourage them to pass it on in a pleasant manner instead of by complaining 🙂 With respect, hope, joy and love, Carmela

  2. Buddhism really preaches the importance of the moment. One of the reasons I recently started to practice chanting and group meetings. Much love, great post.
