AWARENESS OF STATES

Buddhism praises awareness, especially awareness of presently arisen states. There is a value in being aware of what is arising, being aware of what is persisting, what is fading away. Thus I might notice that a feeling of sadness is arising, or that sadness is persisting, or that the sadness is fading, or that happiness is arising, or that happiness is persisting, or that the happiness in me is melting away, and so on.As with all exercises, there are good ways to do this and there are also…See More

WEEP FOR OUR WORLD

Posted on August 20, 2019 at 21:38 2 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…

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 10 Comments

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…

SUCCESSFUL FIRST ELEUSIS SEMINAR

Posted on March 15, 2019 at 16:59 2 Comments

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.

The pleasure to meet was on my side, and it is a delight to stay in contact.

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 !

Thank you

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 cheat, for I am reading your book and still grappling with your mention of upaya: I had not dwelled on that one until your message. But I meant Upeksha - perhaps a good concept to associate with noble ?

I am wondering what characters render XinJin and AnJin - perhaps I can then locate the original Chan terms

 hoşbulduk, Baruch Hanimza” : both Hebrew and Turkish have developed apt responses to “Welcome”, perhaps each loosely rendered as “glad to be here “ and “Blessed is he/she already there”. Possibly in English that could be “Well Arrived” 。I have yet to find the Buddhist or Chinese response , so 全心欢迎您的回答 (“Whole hearted welcome Your response )

Thank you,  I will try to join, at least single days if it's possible. For the next workshops during 2018 in Korea I will work out my attendance in a more relaxed way!

Twice Istarted Italian lessons but could not continue through circomstances. You make me feel wanting to learn it again. Then I could understand one of my favourite films in it's original language!

La meglio gioventù (2003)  a film from Marco Tullio Giordana.

Sagesse féline...

Posted by Tamuly Annette on September 29, 2019 at 12:00 1 Comment

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…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“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
