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…

We have just had our first Eleusis Seminar on the theme of the Philosophy of Taoism.

Sixteen people took part and from immediate feedback it seems to have been a great success.

We shall do more.

There is a second meeting of a more open kind this evening.

Thank you for the invitation, David. I hope you will get better soon. I just had Karin visiting at my holiday home in Holland. We talked about the ITZI conference. I look forward to attend. (Still need to register.) Cheers!

It was good to be part of the talk and discussion. A unique experience from my kitchen in Tel Aviv as I prepare to fix our family dinne. I look forward to more !

Noble practice then: with confidence , at ease. Well centered. With an upaya to suite the person and situation, definitely not merely 方便 approach.

But I meant Upeksha - perhaps a good concept to associate with noble ?
