Blessings to the folks who run this site, Especially Krishna who does such a great chore of love.

Dear my beloved friends, this is the most beautiful site. Full of lovely photographs and sweetness, the scent of sandlewood, the words ob Buddha, the poetry of Rumi, the laughing faces of my dear friends. I am in a paradise where there is no conflict, only love amongst our fellow beings. How can I think of the differences between any of us. We are the same, my heart is yours and yours is mine. Our thoughts are of beauty and kindness. You have all changed my live, you have made me a better man with more love to give and today I give it all to you, all that I have is yours, my vessel never empties because of the love you give to me. Blessings dear brothers and sisters, and to the Great Teachers we have that show us the path, I give great thanks. Jam Tse and Namaste, Miguel

"One great question underlies our experience, whether we think about it or not:
what is the purpose of life? From the moment of birth
every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering.
Neither social conditioning nor education nor ideology affects this.
>From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment.
Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the
greatest degree of happiness."

- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Normally, we do not so much look at things as overlook them....

~Alan Watts

Real Freedom

Freedom means being able to choose how we respond to things. When wisdom is not well developed, it can be easily obscured by the provocations of others. In such cases we may as well be animals or robots. If there is no space between an insulting stimulus and its immediate conditioned response—anger—then we are in fact under the control of others. Mindfulness opens up such a space, and when wisdom is there to fill it one is capable of responding with forbearance. It’s not that anger is repressed; anger never arises in the first place.

-Andrew Olendzki, "Calm in the Face of Anger," from the Fall 2006 Tricycle. Read the complete article.


-------------------------------------------

Are you fleeing from Love because of a single humiliation?
What do you know of Love except the name?
Love has a hundred forms of pride and disdain,
and is gained by a hundred means of persuasion.

-Rumi

Namaste, Miguel
