The stories we should be telling aren't easy ones. They aren't always pretty. They have a responsibility to the person giving them to us. We shape and capture our take on them but they are so much more than what we expect, if we are really looking. The Buddhists do not believe in an eternal soul. What we experience right now is it. All of it. Our time here is to figure it all out, life. This simultaneous time adventure with others like us, all connected. There is no meaning to it, except for that we create. Thrown at us is hardships and roadblocks, attachments and more. We spend time, energy, money and an entire life figuring it out. So you just want to address the surface or how deep can you go?
