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.

So Tender, So Fragile...Life...Gift...Gift...Gift

For Grace Rhea

I held a friend's dead baby little girl in my hands yesterday. In my hands, not my arms.
It was so kind of her to allow me to hold that tiny little life.
This tiny little being, so few breaths taken in this life,
but the fact that she was here forever changes this world and the world of her parents.
We all matter.
Every moment.
Even when it's just a moment.

Deep Bows,

A deep bow for you, Alan. What a precious little life to behold.
