it's just true

Did you ever notice how many things in life were just true? And since they were just true, you didn't really have to pay them much mind or break a sweat over them?

You wake up in the morning and have to pee. It's just true.
Time for a cup of coffee. It's just true.
And some breakfast. It's just true.
Get ready for work. It's just true.
And go to work. It's just true.
And work. It's just true.

True, along the way there may be thoughts and emotions that rise up, but basically it's just true and getting your tail in a twist about it is just icing on the cake. You don't really need to get all that excited. After all, it's just true.

What do you think it might be like to wake up in the morning and realize that Buddhism is just true. Not a tail-twister ... just true?

Wouldn't that be easier?

That might be true. :shock:
