  •  Yes, I'm not a Buddhist because (7+ / 0-)

    the Buddha spent so much time harping about little first-world inconveniences and missed the bigger picture about transcending selfishness for the greater good.

    To this day I don't understand why the Buddha dwelled so much on first-world concerns.  I guess we're all limited by the cultures we're born into and have difficulties imagining others.

    "Happiness is the only good. The place to be happy is here. The time to be happy is now. The way to be happy is to make others so." - Robert Ingersoll
