His 13 interests
in his own words...
Everyone wants happiness. Buddhism talks about how happiness and suffering are within our minds. So we have to solve the problem ourselves. But this doesn't mean others can't help us. All practice is for the purpose of completely realizing our buddha nature. You may see the awakening mind at any time. It will be for a brief interval. But to see it completely requires very hard work. It takes energy and practice. For me it is a big challenge. But it is possible for anyone to realize with practice. The most excellent practice I have found is mindfulness practice. You can practice it through your whole daily life. If some challenge comes up it doesn't matter. You can still move forward. Buddha nature brings confidence in oneself. Buddhism always talks about the life story of the Buddha, so we can see he was a human being like ourselves. All the great masters were human beings. We all can heal ourselves and change things for the better. In Arizona a friend named George wanted me to go to see a Jewish teacher. He played the guitar and sang songs in Hebrew. One song had the lyrics, "Things break, but they can be repaired." I liked that. Because our nature is covered by afflictive emotions we have ups and downs. That is the nature of life.
