A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

When we feed our Egos, we starve our souls! The material world we live in thrives on feeding our egos and

starving our souls. That is why there is no soul in anything we do. Praying and going to temples and churches

too has become more food for the ego rather than the soul. We need to find ways to feed our souls and starve

our egos if we want our civilization to be meaningful.

Enough is enough!

H.H. the Dalai Lama in his hands the Panchen Lama

Another deep, deep heartache. George Floyd, an unarmed innocent black man, is dead, killed by a white police officer whose duty is to “serve and protect.” Racism and bigotry in America fueled by the current administration’s constant promotion of White…

Humanity

What is happening in the US today, and in many other parts of the world, is pathetic, painful and disgusting. The inability of civilized human beings to get along in this modern age is shameful. The burden for this lies heavily on the White race and, to a lesser degree on the people of color.

As long as the Whites refuse to acknowledge and atone for the historic plunder and pillage of the rest of the world the wounds will fester. The foundation for the affluence today is built on the…

My favorite place to stand

Have I lived enough?

Have I loved enough?

Have I considered Right Action enough, have I come to any conclusion?

Have I experienced happiness with sufficient gratitude?

Have I endured loneliness with grace?

I say this, or perhaps I'm just thinking it.

Actually I probably think too much.

Then I step…

Mary Catherine Bateson writes: Lynn [Margulis] submitted her paper to 15 different journals in 1966 before it was published, by the Journal of Theoretical Biology. It was turned down for going against the prevailing assumption, which came out of Darwin’s writings, that evolution depends on conflict and…

~ Lockdown ~ POEM

Marvelous poem Nada. Here is another: courtesy George Gorman

Lockdown



Yes there is fear.

Yes there is isolation.

Yes there is panic buying.

Yes there is sickness.

Yes there is even death.

But,

They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise

You can hear the birds again.

They say that after just a few weeks of quiet

The sky is no longer thick with fumes

But blue and grey and clear.

They say that in…

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…

From 'Love Letter to the Earth'

Before eating, we may like to take a moment to reflect on our food... we vow to eat in a way that preserves our compassion and reduces the suffering of living beings. Someone without compassion can’t be happy, because they’re cut off from others and can’t relate to the world. We need to have compassion, too, for the Earth, our mother. When we…

We are all concerned with taking action

We are all concerned with taking action, doing things, resolving problems, providing for others.

We are always trying to plan something, conclude something else, discover a third.

There is nothing wrong with that -after all, that is how we build and modify the world. But the act of Adoration is also a part of life. To…

Samari Spiritual Warrior

H.H. the Dalai Lama

Sometimes forgiving ourselves is not enough. Although it is hard to do, when we manage to forgive ourself the pain of hurt and violation often remains. Something else is need to completely heal. Repair means emotional hygiene. That is, to clean up our residual pain often associated…
