Beyond optimism and pessimism the Buddha taught possibilism. You say, “Possibilism, what are you talking about, Mark?” What I’m talking about is that no matter how hopeless anyone feels, one can connect with an inner core of life energy, vibrancy, the source of life affirming change. It’s always there within reach. Possibilism! That’s the Buddha Way!
In the New Year, may you enjoy the best possible health and great happiness. What’s more, for the sake of life on earth, may you know bliss as you grow in simplicity & contentment.
I’m always on the lookout for news that sparks even the tiniest bit of optimism about the future. We need that right now, right? I know I do. I look for such news everyday. And, the good news that’s recently come to my attention is minimalism. Ah, minimalism, mindfulness and affection.
