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.

Nothings is permanent

Beautiful sunny, cool, windy day...I have some bamboo trees out back over my fence. They are great weather veins. The ghostly wind incarnates through them. They are constantly being conveyed upon by the myriad things yet they remain "bamboo".

Be intimate with life today!

p.s.
Can someone tell me how to set the right time on my post? Slow learner here. Thanks.

Rain, Rain, drip, drip

Yesterday it rained all day. It was like having permission to just "be". I cooked some shrimp creole (too salty though), listened to music, played some guitar and generally loved the whole day! Tomorrow I have a funeral at 3:00, whether it rains or not.

Be intimate with life today!

Today I am beginning my blog. It will mostly be quotes I find interesting from my own reading and studying of the Way. Sometimes I will comment on the quote, other times I will just leave it as it is. This is an unfolding process, just like my spiritual journey...so who knows..."not knowing is most intimate."
