In the Grip of Discovery and Creativity

Very often we artists will be in a world of our own. When an idea grips us - we feel as if our minds are on fire. Yes, they start burning!

I am in several creative fields. I am also in the field of science which has me completely in its grip. When I want to find out something- for days, months and years I cut off the whole world. I become very absent-minded (my

To The Mist That Refreshes Me All Days, My Love Always, Namaste, Miguel

We need a little more compassion, and if we cannot have it then no politician or even a magician can save the planet.

~The Dalai Lama


Change is Inevitable

As Buddhists, we work to accept the impermanence and inevitable decay of the physical body. But it’s not enough to accept it as a fact; we can believe in this and still not want it in plain sight. Nagarjuna said, “Change makes all things possible.” It is… Continue
