Monk In The World

To be a monk is to have time to practice for your transformation and healing. And after that to help with the transformation and healing of other people.

Humming Along


Spent this early morning watching these little fellows /gals get their sweet fix.

Speaking of sweet, can we say life is sweet just as it is?

That is certainly not true for some friends of mine who have been in the ICU for the past month with their 17 year old daughter. She was to begin her senior year this year. She was heading for band practice in early August when her car went off the road and ran into a tree. Still don't know what the outcome for this will be neurologically. This is their sweet life for the moment, waiting , waiting, waiting and hoping, hoping, hoping.

How will these parents be different? That will be up to them but they will certainly be different!

Can our practice make this situation different?

Can prayer?

Seems to me the SITUATION is just what it is.

Our practice can make a difference though in how we respond to this situation.

Just This. It's always JUST THIS. What will you do with THIS?

Be intimate with life!
