Basic Life Precepts

Edward

I am an atheist and am completely against religion. But I have found in Buddhism 5 moral precepts that before even finding them I already lived by.

  1. To refrain from taking life (non-violence towards sentient life forms)
  2. To refrain from taking that which is not given (not committing theft)
  3. To refrain from sensual (sexual) misconduct (not committing rape, etc)
  4. To refrain from lying (speaking truth always)
  5. To refrain from intoxicants which lead to loss of mindfulness (specifically, drugs and alcohol)

Number 1 on that list is the one thing that over 95% of the world don’t do. Their morals stop with no hurting humans as if they were somehow more capable of feeling pain and more deserving of being respected.

    I’ve controlled iTunes from my watch while I’m in the car, and I’ve synced two different photo albums to the watch, which I browse through often. I’ve used Apple Maps for turn-by-turn directions, and like the way the watch buzzes on my wrist ahead of an upcoming turn.

    If I were to have the shoes now I would never wear them, but I may not be able to throw them away—they were closer to a “grail” than any shoe would ever be again. They represented everything I wanted in this world, far beyond style.
