double dose of daily encouragement

In the mean time, here are two awesome daily encouragements to think about!
Faith and happiness: two things that lie hand in hand, and if we tend to them both, then our lives can be a little more enjoyable. Enjoy!

“When we plant the seed of happiness that is faith and carefully tend its growth, it will produce fruit without fail. We have to bear in mind, however, that we cannot plant a seed today and expect it to bear fruit tomorrow. That’s not reasonable and Buddhism is reason. If we persevere in the practice of “faith equals daily life” in accord with reason, then our prayers will definitely be answered.”

“Faith is light. The hearts of those with strong faith are filled with light. A radiance envelops their lives. People with unshakable conviction in faith enjoy a happiness that is as luminous as the full moon on a dark night, as dazzling as the sun on a clear day.”
