======================

Regard all things with amazement, admiration and sympathy. Study the beauty and forms of nature. Meet adverse occurrences with equanimity. Know that all that is manifest is remarkable, yet even the most fine and beautiful shall also pass away.

Do your best to be plain and straightforward, sincere in what you say and do. Although social situations can be complex and confused, stay in touch with what is truthful, real and fundamental.

Be relaxed and walk gently upon the earth. Although one adore and worship high ideals, it is vital to remain aware of one’s own frailty and limitations. Nobody is perfect. Knowing oneself one can empathise with others.

Value both solitude and amicable company. A person who can stand on his own feet can be a friend to the world. Help those in need. Be respectful, hospitable and open handed, like the good inn keeper who welcomes guests and also wishes them well when they depart.

While living and working in the material world of causes and conditions. always bear in mind the beyond, the spirit of the sages, the unconditional, the deathless. Let it enlarge your heart and mind with the blessing of infinite peace.

Ik ben een religieus Boeddhist

Een tijdje geleden beantwoordde ik een klop op mijn deur en kwam ik in gesprek met twee Jehovah's Getuigen.  Ik vertelde hen dat ik boeddhist was.  Ze vroegen meteen of ik een religieuze boeddhist of een filosofische boeddhist was.  Ik antwoordde…See More

Bombu Quote

Quote from Anthony De Mello:
“…in awareness you will understand that honour doesn’t mean a thing. It’s a social convention, that’s all. That’s why the mystics and the prophets didn’t bother one bit about it. Honour or disgrace meant nothing to them. They were living in another world, in the world of the awakened. Success or failure meant nothing to them. They had the attitude: “I’m an ass, you’re an ass, so where’s the problem?”

En l'absence de Darmavidya, j'ai - en ma qualité de voisine et d'amie - le privilège de m'occuper (un peu) de Tara, la petite chatte. C'est un bonheur  de la voir me faire la fête chaque fois que je me rends à Eleusis: elle s'étire, se roule sur le dos au soleil ou saute sur mes genoux. J'ignore si elle a profité de l'enseignement du maître des lieux, mais j'ai comme l'impression qu'elle me donne une belle leçon de sagesse: elle…

WEEP FOR OUR WORLD

Posted by David Brazier on August 20, 2019 at 21:38 3 Comments



At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…
