To be an admirable person, according to the teachings of the Buddha, means to master virtue, endurance, purity and understanding.
The Buddha spoke of two types of human beings: worldlings and Noble Ones. To be noble, he said, you need education, training and realization.
Harmfulness ends when we’re brave enough to endure the unpleasantness of changing for the better. This makes us heroic.
To live a spiritual life all you have to do is improve something in your life, abandon what harms you and see every day activities as sacred.
According to the Buddha, not all beings can practice Dharma. Even if one is reborn in the human realm, the possibility is limited.
Going for the easy way is what we’ve always done but has never worked. Dharma goes the hard way to get different results.
