"When we seek happiness through accumulation, either outside of ourselves -- from other people, relationships, or material goods -- or from our own self-development, we are missing the essential point. In either case we are trying to find completion. But according to Buddhism, such a strategy is doomed. Completion comes not from adding another piece to ourselves but from surrendering our ideas of perfection." -- Mark Epstein

  1. A very Reya-like photo to go with the quote! I've given up on completion in any form. It's enough of a challenge just to maintain what I currently have.
