To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, once must first discipline and control one's own mind.
If man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
~~~ Buddha

At what cost though? Ones own mind can find the way, but through what way. Why does one endure so much through life before finding his own way to enlightenment.
There will always be something blocking it as with todays society. Half the people now a days could not find their own enlightenment if they tried. Man cannot control their mind with the world today how it is, we are turning against our selves now a days and will become not a democracy anymore through open societies that share information, but only to become dictatorship or monarchy rule. We all know the day will come when man will destroy earth and turn on ourselves. Is this the way we want to go? Even if we wanted to stop it before it happens... what is the cost?
