CONVERSATION WITH BUDDHA

Years ago, when I was a soldier lost in the jungle I met Buddha. Buddha asked me what I seek. I said “I want happiness.” Buddha said write it down and I did.

Then he said, “Look at what you wrote.” I did. He said now erase the “I.” That is your ego. Then he said,  “Erase the word “want.” That means nothing but meaningless desire. Now what is left. That is the day I discovered that happiness is being alive.
