A-ways to grow

All that you can't leave behind..all that you build..all that you break..
--We mentioned in our look at Taoism that we should not be proud, but to complete things and then walk away from them to start new things and thus always be free.

--In our look at Buddhism we learned that even annoying and stupid situations are oppourtunities to show our compassion and self-less-ness - in fact, they are the best situations to do this!
I know there is a verse in the Bible that says this same thing...
Matthew 5:43-47
"Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends his rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?"

I have a ways to grow!

EPHESIANS 6:18 - And pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.
Some people think of prayer as a thing to do on Sunday or at night - yes I fall into the trap too - but I am gonna try to do better cause its for my own good ^_^
