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.

Commentary/Reality


All of our commentary about our life is just commentary. It isn't our life. We can't do anything else with our life but just live it and be absorbed in it, in the moment that we are living it. After that, the rest is just description after the fact.

Maybe David Loy is right, the world is made of stories. For sure history is made of stories.


But I love a good story and a good story teller. 


It's important then to have eyes to see and ears to hear.
But seeing and hearing don't really take place until we know for ourselves...not according to someone else's commentary.


And it seems all the old farts say that when we do know, it's probably not a good idea to try and put into words. But then that's how I know the old farts said this. What is there to do?

Maybe Dosho Port over at Wild Fox has something to say about this.
