About this blog

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battlesI don’t know who you are. And you don’t know who I am.

But I do know that every one of us is the same. We all share the same feelings, the desire for a sense of greater worth, a need to be loved and we desperately want our lives to mean something.

Each of us faces the same battles as one another as we go about fighting them each day. The battles may be different, and some may be larger than others… but they are very real for us because we are the ones fighting them.

Just like you, I have been fighting my own battles and they have been intensifying over the past year. Yes, as battles usually do, mine have taken a toll on me emotionally and physically. I don’t see them finishing anytime soon but I’m not prepared to end up being a casualty. I’m far too intelligent to allow that to happen.

I set up this blog as a way to help me get things in perspective. The stuff I write is the material I believe in. But when life throws us a curve ball, and we get side-tracked, we need to take the time to revisit our beliefs to put us back on track. If this helps you in the process, even better. If any of this tugs at you (even just a bit) and helps you get a better perspective, it would make me really happy. Take a few seconds to comment and let me know. It would mean a lot to me.

I have no financial interest in this. I’m not selling anything. I’m not looking for recognition either, which is the reason I choose to remain nameless.

I consider myself as a Buddhist. But I’m not the type who dives into scripture, etc. I follow the basics as I believe they are enough for me to live my life well. I don’t plan to teach Buddhism here. The idea is to write about what it has taught me and how I apply it in situations that I come across on a daily basis.

So I will leave you with Buddhism 101 – “Don’t hurt yourself, don’t hurt others”.
