 The last three steps of the twelve step program are commonly known as the ''maintenance steps''.  Step 10: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it. Step 11: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with a Higher Power of our understanding, praying only for knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out. Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to…See More

Quarantine.

Posted on February 22, 2017 at 13:19 2 Comments

It’s funny what goes through your mind when you spend several hours walking round in circles chanting! In my experience it can be as mundane as thinking about the person who laid the carpet, or as profound as contemplating the significance of spiritual practice. Here’s what came up for me in our most recent session:

In a few billion years the sun will burn out and it’s gravitational mass will be reduced to the point where it can no longer maintain it’s influence on the…

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…

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:

   

  1. 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…

Medicine Buddha

Posted by Satya Robyn on April 24, 2017 at 13:57 0 Comments

Colleague Buddhists - I'm getting to know Medicine Buddha as I haven't met him before and he's come into my life at just the right time.

Anything you'd be willing to share about your personal relationship with him / stories/ facts / books etc. I'd be very grateful. Deep bow.

Wrong

I am about to do, or have already done, something wrong,

Which will cause me to be responsible for something terrible.

How can I prevent this from happening, or undo what is already done?

I even feel responsible for others' atrocities I don't even know.

Lamb

There are accidents,

There are mistakes,

And there is deliberately doing wrong.

Why do I feel responsible for others'…
