Does Buddhism make one repressed and less human?


Coming from a devout Buddhist family, I've been exposed to Buddhism for many years. I've also studied it during my research into religions and search for truth. But after doing some reflecting, pondering and analyzing of Buddhism lately, I have some new observations and critical questions that I would like to share and elaborate on.

It's Not How You Start, It's How You Finish. The Season is a Long One.

By Andy

Happy summer solstice! By now, schools are out for the summer, graduation ceremonies are taking place or have already taken place, Memorial Day, the U.S. holiday that traditionally kicks off the summer season, has passed, and some people are already enjoying their summer vacation or have made plans for the summer. This got me to thinking about certain seasons or quarters not only in sports or in financial terms, but during the entire year. I got to thinking how deceptively long a season can be. Then the affirmation dawned on me that it doesn't matter how you start a season, a game, an academic semester a workday or even a trip, it's how you finish it.

The deep emptiness in America that no one dares to talk about - My lecture to two guys at Subway today

      


Tonight I went to eat at Subway here in Phoenix. There were two black guys there. I was afraid they might mug me.

But after a while, we started talking about how the sugar in the sodas there were unhealthy and then I gave them my deep spiel about the problems in America.
