The cause of sadness

Right now heres what I am feeling - Sad!

I wish life were simpler. Feelings were not complicated. Guilt was not cultivated. Love was simpler.

And then I read this in the paper:-

There is only one cause of unhappiness: the false beliefs you have in your head, beliefs so widespread, so commonly held, that it never occurs to you to question them. --- By Anthony de mello.

Welcome back. Can i share my thoughts as an extension to what u have written?

Love is simple. Its acceptance and its unconditionality may not be so.But the accpetability within has to be uncluttered, this clarity shall shine and make others see it the way you want it to be seen..

So fly forth on the gossamer wings of love. It doesnt come often and when it does, should not be left by the side..nurture it inside, then it blossoms

Hmm... thanks Kau..that makes lotta sense. One more thing I've noticed that the moment one expresses doubt or lack of confidence, someone else becomes more sure of them.

If someone else is your own then the truth may hold some grain. Dont fear questioning, but dont question too much too soon. :) Love Always.
