Word up – Monk

A monk is a religious man living a life of vows – typically poverty and obedience.

A Trappist monk takes this to extremes with a vow of silence 🤐

Buddhist monks live a simple life of prayer and meditation.

So what wise words can we learn from monks: here are a few:

  • Happiness is a journey not the destination.
  • Give even if you only have a little.
  • The root of suffering is desire.
  • What we think, we become.
  • Nothing remains without change.
  • Life is suffering.
