Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

Veronica Shoffstall

No one is responsible for your happiness,
Nobody
And your not responsible for anyone else’s

No one is responsible for your growth
No one is responsible for your career
No one is responsible for the actions you take, or dont take

Stop waiting for other people to solve your problems,
Stop blaming other people,

Just get out there and tend to your garden and watch what happens

It’s all on you.

Of course there are some people who want to beat the living daylights out of you for just for asking a simple question

Of course there are some people who want to beat the living daylights out of you for just for asking a simple question

Even though they themselves don’t even know why some tormas are red and others are white

Patrul Rinpoche

In the enlightened Vagabond there is a story about a monk shouting a Patrul for painting all the Tormas read (a figure for rituals)

The man threatened to beat up Patrul, and Patrul asked the question do you even know why some are painted red and some white

The monk couldn’t answer

And this is something we see every day,
People getting so worked up and angry about beliefs they have been given

But if you asked the question they wouldn’t be able to explain why they believe that or why they do a certain ritual

It’s kind of a dangerous place to be, how could you get so worked up and angry about something you dont fully understand

Your just blindly following

Part of growing as a person is questioning everything, why do I follow this, why do I believe that

Is this something I believe or has it been forced upon me

What do I truly believe

And whatever you do follow, at least make sure you understand it

This is true in religion, philosophy, health and fitness industry and well everything really

Question your methods
