"They can lock you inside here, but they cannot lock your mind, they cannot lock your spirit, they cannot lock your thoughts." ––Andre S.
Some people say Buddhism is pessimistic. Buddhism is not pessimistic. It is not optimistic. Buddhism is realistic. It asks us to remove the fog that clouds our thinking. When our minds are clear, we can see conditions clearly; and, when we see conditions clearly, the struggle ends.
