NO WAY OUT

Sometimes I stumble on wisdom. Recently, I was talking to a friend about how she stayed far too long in an unhealthy relationship. She said, “I tried so hard to prove myself to him…” I shook my head and said, “I don’t think that’s it. It’s not that you were trying to prove yourself to - Read More -

JUST DO IT

Nike got it right. I think “Just Do It” is an all time great slogan for life. Sometimes I feel that our society has become obsessed with living vicariously through others.

Everything can be seen as a this; Everything can be seen as a that. The that depends on the this; the this mirrors the that. One follows from the other; each is inseparable from both. You can’t have right without wrong, life without death, the true without the false. The Master is not trapped in - Read More -

HUMILITY AND FREEDOM

This morning I read a remarkable perspective of how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ended the terror of living as a black person in the United States. The article discusses how he taught the black community to face their worst fears and, as a community, accept abuse with a non-violent reaction. In the ways of Gandhi, Dr. King - Read More -

PRAY AND PRACTICE

The Buddha taught: “If you are standing on one shore and want to cross over to the other shore, you have to use a boat or swim across.

BREAKING FREE

So I decided to start this holiday morning off with a little Harry Potter :) As I was re-watching The Order of the Phoenix, I saw this scene of the Weasley twins breaking free of Hogwarts just after a confrontation with the (evil) Professor Umbridge and it resonated with me… In the scene before, the - Read More -
