In Chapter 7 of the Lotus Sutra titled the Magic City we have one of the major parables which is a story of travelers going to a distant place. The road is dangerous and unknown. The travelers seek out a guide who knows the way. There journey is to take 500 yojanas which is fundamentally a measure of distance which can be covered in one day, so it is ti be a 500 day journey. A lot will happen over the course of 500 days and untold distance. There will be death, birth, hunger, emergencies, repairs, some hunger perhaps. Many things will face the travelers.

Today, 26 January, 2017 I begin what may be the final phase of life, though one hopes not. Well except for those who don't like me. My work in Charlotte is finishes and it was time to make new goals. I have always wanted to live in a place with abundant snow before I die. Syracuse NY was the place I decided upon a few years ago and that is where I am headed.

My belongings were packed and loaded on a truck yesterday. Now it's me and my doggy and all that could fit in the car. We are a short distance from Charlotte and as the stress of getting the move done slowly leaves my body a pleasant tiredness has begun to settle.

I do not anticipate my journey to be 500 days, nor as dangerous, at least I hope not. Regardless I have the Buddha and the wisdom of the Dharma to guide me and inform my discernment process as I begin this phase and find my new goals.

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…

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…

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue
