Is it routine or is it habit?

Have you made yourself proud today?

Obviously we deserve to take it easy from time to time. It is possible to be unproductive and still make yourself proud! But are you sleeping easy tonight?

Why be curious of our suffering?

Newsflash: suffering is inevitable. Even the holiest of monks and bravest of warriors experience heartbreak like the rest of us.
