Just Be Yourself

Don’t be so Buddhist, just be yourself! it was said by Kalu Rinpoche, the Tibetan great incarnated lama.    

I’ve just try to give my view on this topic, hope you like it!

If we try to become Buddhist, we’ll forget who we really are, and we just tend to believe that we are a buddhist, but infact we are not……

No need to become Buddhist or act like Buddhist to be a good person by heart or to attain some level. Just be yourself and do Dharma activities genuinely, with whole heatedly because we will not attain any level by trying to be like other people, like probably, most of the buddhist does, try to fold their hand, respecting, going for a meditation retreats, offering, donations and etc etc and forget who you are!

I wrote this because there are many Buddhist who read Buddhist books, philosophies, sutras, listen Dharma talks from the great masters, and feel like some kind, afraid(if I’m not wrong) or we know that this is wrong but we can’t stop! respect the great lama, or master or monks, offerings and many other things. I think who are Buddhist, they know very well, they too are going in this same situation.

So I think better relax and take it cool! be yourself to be a better person, keep smiling! 🙂 because world is really very beautiful place! and we are very privileged to live in this world! ^_^

And the article or poem below, I just got while searching for the picture of Be yourself! and I gone through it, really liked it so post it in my blog, read it! is really very nice!

Your great mistake is to act the drama

as if you were alone.  As if life

were a progressive and cunning crime

with no witness to the tiny hidden

transgressions.  To feel abandoned is to deny

the intimacy of your surroundings.  Surely,

even you, at times, have felt the grand array;

the swelling presence, and the chorus, crowding

out your solo voice.  You must note

the way the soap dish enables you,

or the window latch grants you freedom.

Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity.

The stairs are your mentor of things

to come, the doors have always been there

to frighten you and invite you,

and the tiny speaker in the phone

is your dream-ladder to divinity.

Put down the weight of your aloneness and ease into

the conversation.  The kettle is singing

even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots

have left their arrogant aloofness and

seen the good in you at last.  All the birds

and creatures of the world are unutterably

themselves.  Everything is waiting for you.
