by Guy Ritchie

They're all based on factual characters.

your goals and maintain your happiness.

Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected
in a cosmic religion for the future:

natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.

(it really is something separate from yourself).

I am like a newborn.
I have what I have today;
I have my fingers, my toes,
some people in my life,
some material and financial state.

perhaps a nightmare,
perhaps a cherished memory,
but only a dream - nothing more.
I will make all decisions and actions based solely
on what I have today as a starting point."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Living Into the Great Paradox,
I strive toward my vision,
while accepting gratefully whatever life serves up.
I work to bring about my vision of the future,
which is based on my value system of what is right,
just, noble, compassionate, generous, humane, peaceful, and loving.
Simultaneously, I accept that my vision
is based on only my opinions and prejudices,
and I honor all points of view and value systems,
no matter how different from my own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

and can never grow in a jealous heart.
