Seizing the Hell Realms

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…

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:

   

  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…

Libertad

Y tambien la libertad interior, de alguna manera somos esclav@s en el sistema capitalista, dependemos del capital, del trabajo para sobrevivir, y siendo mujer se añade el lugar que nos adjudica el patriarcado...lo que está en mis manos es afrontarlo desde un lugar más grande y ponerlo a mi favor, para practicar la consciencia, aprender, ver más allá de las apariencias...creo que estoy intentando saborear la libertad interior. Me doy cuenta de que los condicionamientos, la personalidad…

Sagesse féline...

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…

WEEP FOR OUR WORLD

Posted by David Brazier 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 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…

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
