"I wasn't able to be at the order meeting as I was ill with a flu-like virus and had a high temperature at the time - I may have been asleep! Obviously we were household isolating, which we continue to do until Saturday, when we can go out and do our…"
"Lovely to read this after returning from Amida Mandala's Bodhi retreat. Makes a nice dharma talk transition back into everyday life as I work through the hillock of emails which greeted me on my return. A lovely, inclusive talk, thank you."
"Walking within danger, I was glad to be both supported in it and directed out of it. I expected neither, so both were gifts. Thinking back, I can remember times when I was part of the danger, and still am in terms of my thoughtless collusion with…"
"Thank you for the reminder that Buddhist arguments tend to be small. Small things which don't tend to start wars. Tiny differences of opinion about the exact nature of the Holy Trinity have certainly caused big problems. Does the Holy Spirit proceed…"
"Shreddies used to be my favourite cereal. The new PM looks a bit like the old one but more stooped and a bit depressed-looking. Hopefully she'll listen more than mark-1 seemed to do, and hopefully not just to the DUP and her Weetabix cronies. Nice…"
"Very interesting. Very good to have something written which comes from a different angle to what I have read already. I like the word Eurexit. I hate the B word. I tend to use the word, Weetabix, which has many of the same letters but in a different…"
"A friend in the USA sent me Seth Speaks to read. I'm finding it heavy-going but I'm interesting in reading a book which was dictated through a medium. In general, life can seem pretty mundane (although there's always the Nembutsu) and I enjoy…"
"Thank you for the beautiful photos. It's been a very flowery spring so far. The dandelions have been particularly prolific. The flowers seem to make the bird song even more melifluous. Namo Amida Bu."
"I like reminders like this. It's so easy to get caught up in absolute specifics and then, unknowingly, start to exclude other beings. I've just started readying, Spirit and the Politics of Disablement' by Sharon V. Betcher, who is a Christian…"
"Today I planted the Rosa glauca I ordered recently in the Pure Land inspired garden I am making on our allotment. I was really excited about this. It has red stems in winter, red-tinged leaves in spring, pink flowers in summer and purple hips in…"
I am currently looking for new direction in life following a series of personal and family crises. I realised that I have had my head in the sand for a long time and need to take it out. I love writing hymns but only do so when they come to me.
