"Be a light unto yourself; betake yourselves to no external refuge. Hold fast to the Truth. Look not for refuge to anyone besides yourselves." -Buddha's final words
This quote by Buddha reminds me that we need to stop looking to others for happiness and look inwards. This quote is not an excuse to abandon the sangha or take up self-cherishing, but a call to action to change our way of thinking and realize that happiness exists before us and within us; we just have to see it.
