The Buddha denies the existence of any permanent entity either physical or mental. We call this theory about self as Anatmavada.

Acceptance and Love

When we accept the way things are,
we are able to love everything and anybody.
When we are not able to accept even one thing in this world right now, then how could we ever develop boundless love?

Lack of acceptance is conflict.
Conflict is pain.
It is psychological pain.
It is a spiritual illness.

As long as our hearts are tormented by that pain,
we do not have the strength to give our heart to anything
and because of that it is impossible to bring about inner awakening.

Enlightenment, you see, is just another name for boundless love.
