Morning Meditation.

Beautiful sky.Dark clouds with a rugged tear,Stretching across the horizon,and giving a sense of worlds beyond.A rip in the curtain of delusion,forming a peephole through to the Pure Land.The sweet sound of the birds is an echo of my breathing,and not apart from it.Many Buddhas and much rejoicing as the universe celebrates the power of practice,sending waves of bliss and passion into my heart.The world rests in a deep trance,awaiting the call to service.Namo Amida Bu!See More

Humility.

I found these in a book that Satya lent me recently. They're helping me to identify my spiritual pride and my resistance to reality. Thanks Satya. Namo Amida Bu(   :St. Benedict's 12 steps to cultivating humility:   Be aware of God's presence always. Remind yourself that if God is everywhere, God is present as everyone. Each encounter is an encounter with God, demanding your utmost respect and attention. Place God's will above your own. What is your will? To control life to your own advantage,…See More

Seizing the Hell Realms

Posted on January 29, 2017 at 14:35 0 Comments

Ippen's hymn came to me at work the other day when I was struggling to find gratitude for the recent, somewhat un-forseen circumstances of my life. Although we hate the hell realms, ''we seize them again''. I always take these words as a reference to the continuum that unfolds as karma and delivers us to the conditions in which we find faith and then continue to unpick the knot of our bondage to Samsara. Whilst psychological growth is key to the process, equally as important is to…

Tetragrammaton.

Seems funny that I should end up wandering around Worcester cathedral on my birthday. The first opportunity I’ve had since I’ve been living in the area over the past years. So I thought I’d follow up my recent blog ”Sacred Space” by explaining some of the features, as they appear in these buildings, with my own unique interpretation. Not to be taken as religious or spiritual fact, by the way.



An immense sense of space and a dense matrix of symbolism blows me away as it presents…

Communication? Quelle communication?

Posted by Tamuly Annette on February 6, 2017 at 19:00 3 Comments

J'ai toujours pensé que la véritable communication  ne pouvait se faire qu'en face-à-face et que les communications virtuelles - si communes aujourd'hui sur les réseaux sociaux - ne sont que de déplorables pis-aller. Pourtant, à la réflexion, il me semble qu'il convient de corriger ce point de vue par trop simpliste. Certes, rien ne vaut la richesse d'une rencontre réelle où les paroles ne sont qu'un élément d'un ensemble où tout peut devenir signifiant. Les mots s'accompagnent de toute une…
