"You appear to be enjoying the life of a hermit. I believe to be happy with yourself is very important. It's hard to enjoy others if you can't enjoy your own company."

"Strangers passing in the dark fleeting glances. Not knowing or caring about the others path Where will it take them who pass without a word Not a kind thought or care for the other as they glance Not this for me I who must acknowledge who must care"

Memories and faith

The memories like a swirling cloud of a distant life that knew no bound.A soul that hurt and knew the fear of loneliness and uncertain frown.Like echoes from a distant room they come to haunt and I feel them Strewn about my mind like swirling clouds from a distant life that knew no bound.In tortured twists and silent words I hear the memories like angry verse they come at dusk they come at dawn they come to hurt they come to mourn the passing of a life so torn with anger lust and passing scorn…See More

The love your neighbour campaign in Birmingham came about after the decision to leave the EU. There was an increase in racist attacks and the Church of England hierarchy felt they should take action. What they did was encourage schools and other community venues to put free of charge bright orange banners on fencing etc with the words love your neighbour on them. At the moment funding has been obtained to make more banners to replace any of the 1000 that have gone up already and to encourage…See More

Winter

So cold in the UK at the moment. You really can see it's winter. I find as I get older I'm less able to cope with the cold weather. I enjoy looking at the pattern of the ice on my window, but having to get it off the windscreen of my car is very difficult. My hands feel like they have frozen and I long for the warmth of summertime.

As it's the Holliday period with Christmas upon us I have taken two whole weeks off work. Saved my leave this year and really will appreciate the break. All… Continue

Buddha Quote

Posted on December 9, 2016 at 0:11 0 Comments

My heart, thus knowing, thus seeing, was released from the fermentation of sensuality, released from the fermentation of becoming, released from the fermentation of ignorance. With release, there was the knowledge, 'Released.' I discerned that 'Birth is ended, the holy life fulfilled, the task done. There is nothing further for this world.
The Buddha.

This evening I watched the story of Damilola Taylor. He was the ten year old child that lost his life after being stabbed in London.



It was shocking to think of a child loosing his life this way. I hope that he has been reborn in Amidas pure land where he now resides.



The father of Damilola, Richard Taylor has started to work with disadvantaged youth, trying to show them how to live wholesome lives that are free from drugs violence and hatred.



This reminded me… Continue

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'…
