you act like i care at this point
I love passionate people
that light that enters their eyes when they start talking about something they love
the little arm gestures they make
the massive smile that slips onto their face when they realise someone’s listening
I just love passionate, enthusiastic people and I wish more people would be like that
things i want from a relationship:
- musical theatre duets
+ = i hate you.
% = You’re ugly
A quick PSA, because working in a New Age store I realize a lot of people don’t know this. Keep in mind this is the simple version.
The fella on the left-hand side, that’s Gautama Buddha, the Buddha, the central figure in Buddhism. Note that he is not considered a god, but a teacher and spiritual leader, the first to attain Enlightenment in his era. Note also how thin he is. This is because the Buddha fasted a lot. He was born Siddhartha Gautama. Buddha is a title, and not actually his name.
The fella on the right-hand side is not Buddha. This is a common misconception in the West. That is Hotai (or Budai or Hotei depending on the language), a Buddhist monk from China and folkloric hero. Hotai is thought by many to be a Buddha, but he is not the Buddha. Unlike Buddha, Hotai actually is revered as a god in Chinese folklore, although not in Buddhist practice.
This post is based on things I’ve been taught by my Buddhist coworker but if I forgot or mixed up something important and you are Buddhist and you notice, please let me know.
This has been an informational post. Have a nice day.

I AM SO TIRED OF EVERYONE BELIEVING THIS MISCONCEPTION.
