Being Ok In Strange Times.

I must admit to having spent the first weeks of this Coronavirus crisis in annoyed skepticism. I felt angry that we were facing another media fear fest after all the previous deadly disease warnings of the last twenty years or so, most of which really didn’t affect the vast majority of people at all. And all of which seemed only really to serve the purpose of causing unnecessary panic and making good headlines. I also lean quite strongly toward the ‘’Conspiracy Theory’’ way of thinking –…See More

"Thanks Dharmavidya. I felt annoyed the other day when I read the phrase "Secular Dharma". This now seems like an obvious contradiction in terms, since dharma is by definition religious and therefore can't be secular. Namo Amida Bu."

Fragile Nature

I found this lovely quote in a book about Jizo bodhisattva:



"We perceive the fragile nature of our human life and it makes us afraid. As protection against the inevitable assaults of a human life - separations, failures, abuse, illness and death - we construct a set of strategies and defences called a self.

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?”
