A Special Message from His Holiness the Dalai Lama

My dear brothers and sisters,

I am writing these words in response to repeated requests from many people around the world. Today, we are passing through an exceptionally difficult time due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to this, further problems confront humanity such as extreme…

Please read my last post....

PLEASE READ MY LAST POST about what I believe we can do that may actually help get through those "hard-headed" young people who think they know the best way to deal with this!! It starts with CHE POSSIAMO FARE NOI....



I wanted to say, get this off my chest, that I am SO moved by goodness in these days. Reading about it online, and actually caring thoughts of others, it really moves me to tears. Could it be my emotions are all messed up? Could it be I have anxiety? I am working…

CHE POSSIAMO FARE NOI PER AIUTARE? HO AVUTO QUEST'IDEA....

Ieri ho visto quel video di una ragazza giovane "Influencer" (??) che dice più o meno, "Non mi importa, io esco lo stesso. Tanto sono i vecchi a morire da questo virus."

E se noi trovassimo queste persone sul web, tramite fb, oppure cercando "Influencer" su instagram, ecc, e mandassimo un link che parla proprio dei giovani che sono colpiti sperando che lo leggessero, secondo me è MOLTO MEGLIO DI NIENTE. Questi giovani sono pericolosi per la società, perchè ispirano, convincono,…

Prepare a tall cup of coffee if you plan on reading this long post....

I'M NOT A JOURNALIST, NOR A DOCTOR OR NURSE. I am not an expert, but a normal person who happens to be American living in Italy. All I can do right now at this time of Coronavirus is to tell you what has happened here, in simple terms, perhaps on a more humanistic viewpoint, definitely not a scientific one. It may be of help, and that is why I am writing it.

When this new virus began, all of us were doing our normal lives: going out, getting together with…

WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

Bad men made trouble. They brought a bomb to where a bomb never should be: they exploded the bomb. People died; many people. Whether or not they were innocent people may be a matter of viewpoint, perspective, valuation. Apparently those randomly killed were committing no crimes at the time when the bomb exploded—in the moment of their murders. (All those sudden ghosts, no doubt, in a storm of fatal fire were…

THE FORETHOUGHT OF OTHERNESS

Sweet one please—do not try to teach me that to touch and hold hands is the same. I accept that all living creatures are expressions and extensions of one another. This even includes those elements the majority does not attribute life to. At other end of the life spectrum, extinction, genocide, ecocide, coalesce and the cul-de-sac stops at oblivion. A fierce clarity of heart and mind is needed to confront the degrees of… Continue

A Holiday offering to all friends everywhere...

THE YOUNG



Young men and dreamers, young women, bold and beautiful—be joyous in your frolic and meditations. Beside the smiling of your sunlit fields the shadow of death glowers. Do not fall into the blackhole of time. If you must shed your courage, drop clear beads of gold into the common…

DAY PRAYER

Do we dare to live the life of freedom, responsibility, maturity and the dialogical affirmation of mutuality? Do we dare to be the change we desire? Will we come together in the late twilight to be the sacred activism and the shaping of God into prayer that is an embracing compassion and our deliverance from the addictions of greed and violence, ignorance, hatred and fear?…

SHADOWING

Speak into your darkness.  Do not be afraid of the echo when it returns to you.  Are you sleepless because you have heard yourself weeping?  There is so much still to be learned by playing with the games of shadows.  Evolution is a mystery not soon to be mastered.  And the wand of time is not skillfully in our hands.

Sometimes those who ascend the stairs of knowing seem small and on their knees, and their lips are silent.  But how utterly disarming when a robin sings or leaf flutters…

BEFORE YOUR FACE

If you are dreamed of

then you are gold in the alchemy of dreams

If you are imagined

then you are the sculpting of imagination

If you are touched

then heaven and earth are poetry

following the curvature of your motion

If you are loved

love is fulfilled in your body and soul:

the swollen cherry and the blood orange

in the bough

the light of night’s

infinite wheeling stars

When I listen to the quiet

embracing the peace of wild…

EARTH DAY

Look all around—

it is beautiful!

 

Even heavy cloud

on the east

bears a promise of rain.

Many white birds

float on calm sea waters.

Blackbirds of trees

delight in the sky.

Here

under human feet

a green voice of the Earth

ascends

and is singing.

Lovely

 

the daylight’s kisses… Look

—it is beautiful!

THANKSGIVING WORD SOUND

Whenever I come upon a pure talking stone, a bird’s feather, a shell from the surging sea, I take it up, I lift it up, I say the word-sound Hey-ya-tah-ho.

 

I do not know if this is a word from one of the many languages of the Earth. Surely that is possible, but I do not know. Arising from my soul, honoring relationships, in my…

ONE ON THE EDGE OF SHADOW

Hey, turn around! If you want to know who I am, look and listen.

 

I no longer want to hear only what everyone is hearing. I no longer want to see what everyone else only sees. I wan to hear the primal voices, the ancient whispers, the songs and silences, ignored but waiting—sustained by heartdrums in choral…

PRAYER OF HUMILITY

Our father

who art in heaven

 

our mother

who wanders among us

holy and homeless

hallowed be your names

of essence, seedbeds

of archetypes and angels).

 

May your dream of us

be fulfilled in the

earth-sphere as it is

in the creative imagination

and revealed to us

here within the miraculous

work of this living earth:
