The Dark Path to Enlightenment

Friday, April 18th, 2014

“We seldom go freely into the belly of the beast. Unless we face a major disaster like the death of a friend or spouse or loss of a marriage or job, we usually will not go there. As a culture, we have to be taught the language of descent. That is the great language of […]

Just Doing It

Friday, January 24th, 2014

I don’t know what else to title this post. Back in the early days of blogging, people started blogs as social interaction. If the blog had a steady readership, the author would feel a need to explain any gap in posting. Then, other writers started to mock the self-importance of those posts. Who cares why […]

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

“But love, sooner or later, forces us out of time. It does not accept that limit. Of all that we feel and do, all the virtues and all the sins, love alone crowds us at last over the edge of the world. For love is always more than a little strange here. It is not […]

Achingly Beautiful

Monday, January 6th, 2014

This. This may seem like hyperbole, but singing like this — the lyrics, the music, the passion and love — makes me believe in God. (I thank my brother for giving me their CD; it’s all gorgeously sung.) If the embed doesn’t work… here. And to see lyrics…

Which?

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

Keiji, a long-time Zen student, approached his master and said: “I don’t see how there can be any enlightenment that sets you free once and for all. I think we just get ever greater glimpses of Buddha-nature, the vastness that is our true Reality. It’s an ever-expanding process.” The master replied, “That may be what […]

Flow

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

A whole month passed without a post, though I’d thought about it. I’ve been immersed in some personal work and stepping out into new areas that feel exciting. The depression has abated. I feel a need to write but am doing so with interruptions by my little girl and husband every so many minutes, so […]

Sometimes a Retreat is an Advance

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

I’d sunk into a swamp of depression. Why bother going? It was only overnight. I cancelled, one day too late to get a refund. So I went. Nearly there, I found the road blocked. The tunnel said “Under construction.” What next? Go back home? Try to find another way and arrive late? No and no. […]
